Most folks have probably never thought about what it would look like if polygons started getting freaky with each other, but Libs Elliott is not most folks. The Toronto-based textile artist merges the tactile appeal of traditional quilts with the modern edge of computer processing to illustrate what happens when a free-spirited set of triangles love each other very, very much.
Using code framework from Processing, she is able to produce an infinite number of different designs, which she then immortalizes in brightly hued 100 percent cotton covers and pillows.
To the untrained eye, they might just appear to be pretty patterns, but as Elliott explains on her site, a closer look will reveal a kinky side to the sharp angles. “If triangles had sex, this is what it would look like. Trust me.”
I guess I’m into that kind of thing, because these are incredible. All of Elliott’s work is for sale here.
