Punchcard Economy

At the Punchcard Economy workshop for Future Everything, brainchild of ¬†creative inspiration Sam Meech. Here I was taught to machine-knit my own textile pattern based upon my working hours and too-frequent overtime. A surprisingly tough but hugely enjoyable workout, dropped stitches and all, resulting in a sort-of-scarf. Inspired by The Eight Day Hour Movement, Sam’s project reinterprets the heritage of the NW textile industry whilst documenting the increasingly-squeezed experience of workers in today’s digital, creative and cultural industries. Meanwhile… it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it!
