A custom T-shirt design transmitted to the machine via Twitter

Pa++ern is a project that uses Twitter to source unique t-shirt designs. Created by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi, the system translates short bits of custom code received over Twitter into an embroidered shirt pattern. According to the designers, their project is an “esoteric language for embroidery” which was inspired by the idea of “using machines the wrong way.”
