Making Something Out of Nothing is a textile design investigation of voids and nothingness. Beginning with a photocopy of a blank sheet of paper, I repeatedly copied the original until the visual static constructed a dynamic pattern.  The final images (translated through a popular pattern-making software, woven on a computer-assisted Jacquard loom, and the cloth finally cut and sewn into a scarf) represent the idea that everything is either devolving towards or evolving from nothingness.  The photocopier and Jacquard loom simultaneously assume significant roles in the process and production of the pattern by mechanizing and materializing a conceptual gesture into a wearable object.
