A series of Gail Kenning's extended textiles were shown recently as part of the Wangarratta Textiles Awards. The computer programmed animations are created from custom designed software developed and created by Gail Kenning. The software can potentially create millions of different patterns, never repeating the same pattern twice. The programmed weaving patterns were projected across silk organza.
