Kilim (work in progress)2007 - 2009
Kilim is a work in progress; the final piece will be a handmade carpet. Kilim is a digital recreation of a Persian carpet, a conjecture made from a fragment appearing in Hans Memling’s Donne Triptych (c.1475). The Memling guls (geometric motifs) on the carpet take their name from the Flemish painter who placed similar carpets under the Madonna and Child in a number of paintings. In its current form Kilim is reminiscent of a painting and a rug, made on a printer whose motion imitates the weft of the loom, the actual pixels becoming akin to the knots of the rug.
