The Rare Bird Knits is an attempt to create awareness about birds using wearables generated by automated programs. This project was started by Kilian and Soujanyaa at the Helsinki Medialab and was fabricated in the Aalto Design Factory under the instructions of Sanna and Miia.
In this project, the calls of some rare species of birds have been analyzed into frequency data strings that was used to generate visual patterns to be knitted into scarves. The program was written in Processing and the scarves were fabricated in STOLL TMS 340 TC.
