pa++ern :: an esoteric language for embroidery

Pa++tern, created by Daito Manabe + Motoi Ishibashi, is a combination of an installation and an esoteric programming language for embroidery in which a series of industrial sewing machines are controlled by twiterers. Here’s the process: using a simple environment, users create a short program for an embroidery pattern and send it over to the machines through twitter, which in turn embroider it on an actual t-shirt (you have to acquire the t-shirt). Check it out here.
