'Data Weave' features the gorgeous imprints of abstract digital files onto handcrafted textiles. Artist Jeff Donaldson specializes in digital art, namely the concept of digital files. In his latest project, Donaldson transfers his digital designs onto woven garments.

To make his art, Donaldson uses video equipment and coding to create colors that flash across the screen in mesmerizing patterns that are reminiscent of a screen glitch. To make his work more accessible and tangible, the artist decided to imprint these designs onto woven scarves and throw blankets. The abstract designs are perfect for art lovers and novices, as a fine-tuned understanding of experimental art is not necessary to appreciate the beautiful textiles.

Through his art, the artist hopes to use textiles to preserve the concept of carrying information through digital media.
