is a visual and textile artist born based in Stockholm. Her work touches on the technology, code, and interface of weaving, and what that does to how weaving is experienced; as an image or as a system, as free or as strictly ordered. She did early on explore what different technologies and interfaces do to how woven fabric specifically and sometimes contradictory holds certain data. And how a strict order through craft can be transformed into something else and beyond. She is part of a newer generation of contemporary weavers who emerged in the 2010s. This group has explored weaving as an artistic expression, both experimentally and in conversation with tradition.
