Jamie Chalmers (Mr X Stitch) has posted a review of the work of Jeremy Chase Sanders, a textile artist from San Francisco, California, USA. The plaids shown here were woven by Jeremy. They’re pretty enough as they are, but I was fascinated to find out that each is embedded with a coded message. Jamie’s post quotes Jeremy:
Synaesthesia is a neurological phenomenon that causes sense-pairing in the brain. The type of synaesthesia I experience causes me to see a particular color associated with every number and letter of the alphabet (ie ‘2’ is red, ‘E’ is green). I dye threads to match the colors I see in language and weave cloth with coded text.
