Ever seen binary code converted into an image file and thought it would make a great artsy-looking blanket? Probably not but someone was inspired by the idea and came up with Binary Blankets, offering a unique and eye-catching way to chase away the chill when winter rolls around.
Phillip Stearns, an artist that works with electronics and electronic media, is the fellow that saw art where the rest of us saw gibberish and he was anxious to bring this new form of data-sharing to the masses.
Each blanket sports a different look, depending on the type of file used to create the image.
This blanket, for example, was created from iTunes 10.6 OSX
While this one uses Microsoft Word.
Because each type of software creates a unique pattern, and because each image will only be used 5 times, you can probably be pretty confident that your neighbor won’t end up with the same type of blanket.
- Each design is limited to an edition of 5
- Woven in the USA by Pure Country Weavers
- 100% cotton
- Machine Washable
- Hanging Hardware Not Included
There’s a wide assortment of visual styles to choose from, and having image-based art would provide a nice contrast to the audio-based art of VaporSky Spectrum Decor, especially if you’re looking for decor that’s a little different from what everyone else has.
Binary Blankets are available for $350 each at phillipstearns.wordpress.com.
