Data Embroidery with Black-and-White Textures

Petra Isenberg
Tobias Isenberg


We investigated data embroidery with black-and-white textures, identifying challenges in the use of textures for machine embroidery based on our own experience. Data embroidery, as a method of physically representing data, offers a unique way to integrate personal data into one's everyday fabric-based objects. Owing to their monochromatic characteristics, black-and-white textures promise to be easy to employ in machine embroidery. We experimented with different textured visualizations designed by experts and, in this paper, we detail our workflow and evaluate the performance and suitability of different textures. We then conducted a survey on vegetable preferences within a family and created a canvas bag as a case study, featuring the embroidered family data to show how embroidered data can be used in practice.
