*Interwoven* is a long-form generative art series created by Emily Xie as Vol. 4 of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Remembrance of Things Future blockchain initiative. The project is a collaboration with Cactoid Labs in support of LACMA’s Art and Technology Lab.
Made entirely with code, *Interwoven* draws inspiration from the 1986 Bullseye Quilt by Martha Lou Jones in LACMA’s collection, meditating on the quilt’s underlying tension between the computational and handmade through a distinctive patchwork style. The algorithm uses randomness to give rise to creature-like forms in order to embody the narrative elements so integral to the tradition of quilt-making.
