A Thread of Execution presents the work of artists who work primarily with textiles and attempts to link the threads of weaving and fabric to the threads of digital code. Artists Indira Allegra ; Samantha Bittman; Julia Bland; Pip Brant; Elaine Reichek; Carrie Sieh; Frances Trombly and Margo Wolowiec are brought together to illustrate similarities in processes between two vastly different working systems that share several common attributes.
In computer science, A Thread of Execution is the smallest sequence of programmed instructions that can be managed independently by the operating system. A thread refers to a single component of a system’s process. 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. Threads in both systems are laid in a sequence to build a structure.
