These textiles are a collection of woven and knit blankets whose patterns are generated from images taken with short circuited cameras.

Artist Phillip Stearns uses electronics to create phenomenological works of light and sound. 

These blankets are layered with irony: a digital photographic image, made with an intentionally broken (rewired) camera, is mechanically woven or knit into a photoblanket, an object commonly advertised as a kitsch memento. In this project, a keepsake for cherishing one’s memories now becomes a platform for fashioning corrupted memory, the cold logic of digital systems into soft, warm blankets.
