Kniterature is our way of meta analyzing language and literature. Particularly focused on the rhythm and patterns of language, each depending on the author and intention. Each author leaves a distinguishable footprint, a certain way of constructing and arranging sentences and words. Together, in that specific order, they form a text, that nobody else could have written identically.
For example the terms of service of „Instagram“ have a different rhythm than the novel „Alice's Adventures in Wonderland“ by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, written in 1865. Our objective was to find a way to process and present these individual marks and rhythms in a tangible fashion.

Together we started to learn knitting, to get a better sense of what we are trying to accomplish. Discovering that there is more to it than left and right stitches, we stumbled head first into a parallel world – the knitting realm.
Traditionally these patterns repeat in some way, which leads to the same fabrics over and over
again. But we found something fitting for our purposes and we were stoked to end this boredom. With these experiences and informations in mind the process of developing our own software began.
