Language of Loops

The project ‘Language of Loops’ comes from a fusion of the Western alphabet and symbols used in crochet patterns, by exploring hierarchies between written and handheld knowledge a digital font has been developed. The project reflects on the exclusion in society of symbols that you can’t read and the similarity between a pencil and a crochet hook. The work results in a tool where the crochet's pattern and coded messages are mixed and can only be read by those who surrender to the same craft. The font is free to download and use. Shown in the form of posters or wall text in exhibition contexts. The project received support from Längmanska Stiftelsen in 2019 and is ongoing.
