The start of something big!

L-system embroidery
Originally uploaded by MadeleineS.

Botanica Mathematica is my new collaboration with Julia Collins. We are using mathematical principles and textile techniques to generate a range of plant-like forms. The embroidery above uses L-system instructions to place the branches and you can see that after 3 iterations it's looking pretty naturalistic.

The project will use knitting, crochet, patchwork and embroidery to generate works, large and small. Our ultimate aim is to publish a few patterns so anyone who wants to can contribute a Fibonacci Flower or a Binary Bonsai to the textile herbarium. The patterns will appear on nextweek sometime. We also have a group on Ravelry where the patterns will be posted too. more details will follow here as soon as possible.
