Novel textile knot designs through mathematical knot diagrams
conference contributionposted on 2016-08-05, 12:49 authored by Nithikul Nimkulrat, Janette Matthews
A mathematician and a textile practitioner both with an interest in textile knotting and a focus on research in textile design have collaborated to analyze textile practice and realize novel knot designs through mathematical characterization. The design process has made use of century-old drawing techniques used to represent knots and braids. This paper demonstrates how the manipulation of these diagrams was utilized as a design tool to generate and visualize novel patterns.
