Yarn Drawing No. 16 by Sonya Rapoport and Charles Simmonds, 1976.

“Rapoport imposed what she called a “feminist art language code” on salvaged mainframe printouts, stitching them together like pieces of a patchwork quilt with rainbow yarn that she laced through the paper’s pinfeed holes.” >> artinprint

Sonya Rapoport’s Shoe Field exhibition (1982/85/89). 76 people’s feelings about their shoes plotted on a huge ASCII map, constructed with physics software. The circles on the floor are also visualizations of shoe feeelings. Video documentation and more at her website. Also see Artsy and a very interesting article at artinprint.
