Tamara Anna Efrat has created this Crafted Technology project in collaboration with the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and the Hebrew University. With the help of eight algorithms, she changed the patterns of traditional smock embroidery to create her textile pieces.
Crafted Technology was a collaboration project of Tamara Anna Efrat with Moran Mizrahi and Amit Zoran from Hebrew University’s computer science department. Together they have developed eight algorithms that change the pattern of traditional smock embroidery and bring out different qualities of the fabric such as three-dimensionality, elasticity, axial movement and structural strength. The project’s goal was to make the world of computer software accessible for designers without compromising personal creativity.
