QR codes construct the contemporary houndstooth motif, and 001 by MDKtm is covered in them. Forming a futuristic sort of textile pattern, this pixelated print lays out a grid of bug-like characters that may remind you of the Space Invaders game.

In addition to framing an information-age aesthetic that builds upon the classic practice of printmaking, this mono digital vexel print has depth beyond the second dimension. Unrelated the a world the eye can see, a scanning device like one you may have installed on your smartphone is able to read these bar codes that like to different Twitter posts from all over the world. 001 by MDKtm may mark the future of fabric design in which material is manufactured with information embedded within.
