3-D Knitting

This was a collaborative project with fellow Parsons students, Sagarika Sundaram and Saabira Markar for a digital knitting course. The project was built from the idea to create parabolic forms to resemble creatures of the sea. We collectively used the Shima digital knitting machine to create these forms that are not intended to be made with the Shima, pushing the machine to its limits. We embraced our individual skills and incorporated them by developing color swatches, researching knitting structures, digital Shima machine programming, and assembly of our textiles into deep sea creatures.
