Preoccupied by patterns, San Francisco-based Swedish multimedia artist Johanna Friedman synthesizes textile, film, and performance into a canon all her own. Her signature is “jacquard weaving” - the translation of digital images into readable weave patterns, which then become a hand-woven cotton tapestry. You're Not Hot Enough To Be That Crazy (No.01) exemplifies this technique as monochromatic tones of the textile enhance its tactile properties. Friedman’s works have been exhibited extensively across California and Sweden.
