“Nature has its very expected way, but time and permanent repetition are building a certain harmonious chaos. Somehow computers mimic nature...” - Erwan Bouroullec
Like its counterparts, this second, strongly contrasting work in the Risk Knit series explores the roots of computing. Loops of yarn interlink from one continuous thread, creating a sturdy and flexible interface. As Erwan Bouroullec explains, knitted textures can be seen as the roots of computing.

Risk Knit Large
Navy, burgundy, beige
Size: (LxW) 155× 130cm (measured flat, before hanging, without tension)
Weight: app. 1410g.
Dimensional changes in the artwork cannot be controlled, and are desired as part of the concept. Its construction in natural material produces subtle variations, while temperature and humidity influence the woollen medium. The fabric will lengthen after hanging, due to the structural pattern and weight.
Erwan Bouroullec has designed minimal oak brackets, to mount the knits on the wall.
Each Risk Knit will be produced in an edition of 100 units. For each edition sold, The Wrong Shop will provide a signed and numbered certificate of provenance from Erwan Bouroullec.
