This is where the worlds of knitting and programming come together! This leads to new and creative ways of looking at knitting patterns and knitting techniques based on algorithms and mathematics. Generative Knitting is a great example of how modern technology can be combined with old techniques.
What happens when you integrate fashion design and knitting with algorithmic thinking?
That’s exactly what Stephanie Pan explores in her unique Generative Knitting project!
Stephanie works with both the knitting community and programmers to exchange skills and knowledge. She explores the connections between everyday, hands-on and analogue techniques and advanced digital technology by bringing together two completely different worlds; knitting and programming. These worlds already share a rich history that stems from the programmable loom and both have a strong open-source and collaborative character.
Generative Knitting is a great example of how modern technology can be combined with old techniques. And how a somewhat strange collaboration can lead to the development of new and contemporary patterns for the international knitting community and ultimately to new products for our daily lives.

About Stephanie Pan
Stephanie Pan is an interdisciplinary artist, voice artist, and creator. Her work is a combination of performance in theatre, music and film, music composition, participatory performance, textile art, and handicrafts. She often describes her work as 'analogue digital'. She approaches art from an analogue, hands-on approach while reflecting on digital technology and aesthetics and exploiting this within the realm of human imperfection and interpretation.
Stephanie has presented a lot of work on international stages, platforms, and festivals.
In collaboration with Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
