Vintage Knitting Machine Creates Weather Data Sculptures

Vintage Knitting Machine Creates Weather Data Sculptures

Windy weather powers a knitting factory to provide scarves to suit the weather.

Stephen Fortune

Here at PSFK, we’ve noticed that knitting seems to be a craft which is quite amenable to technological mash ups. The latest knitting contraption is the Wind Knitting Factory, created by Marel Karhof. A vintage sock knitting machine creates a scarf for as long as there is wind gusting through the bespoke wind turbine. Each scarf has its own label which tells you how long it took to knit and on which date it was knitted providing a pragmatic mapping of weather data.
