Robin Kang's woven tapestries explore the connections between contemporary technology and the history of textile fabrication and manufacturing. From the influence of Jacquard’s punch card system—developed for his loom—on the creation of early computers, to the hand-woven copper wires found on early memory storage hardware, our current technological landscape is closely linked to the history of weaving. These intertwined histories, which often remain unacknowledged, upend traditional expectations surrounding gender, labor, and technological development.
