A Thread of Execution

Dimensions Variable

20 Oct 201729 Dec 2017

“A Thread of Execution” is the smallest sequence of programmed instructions that can be managed independently by the operating system: the layering of executing threads ultimately produce commands which make software possible.
When thinking about these sequences that build layer upon layer of digital instructions, a link emerges between lines of code and threads of a piece of fabric. The exhibition illustrates similarities between two vastly different working systems through the work of artists who work primarily with textiles: the threads of weaving and fabric and the threads of digital code.
