Data Weaving as Cultural Text was a workshop with Scopelab at UCLA Design Media Arts in 2017. Nine participants explored data visualizations with code to discuss weaving as a method to exit information programmed with the computer. The mission was to combine creative code with feminist and decolonial principles to weave immigrant hate crime data in the browser, using the loom as a platform to discuss bias against women in computation, the Jacquard loom, Ada Lovelace, and the ENIAC. Participants learned Dineh and Pueblo weaving methods to employ a design called the spirit line. It is an independent line created to release weavers from the objects they create and produce new patterns. During the rise of Trump, hate crimes towards immigrants skyrocketed along with demands for a new US/Mexico border wall. Data collected from 2015-2017, such as hate crime, victim race, victim sex, place, offender race, and offender sex were used as variables. Spirit lines were added as a form of glitch and release. Collective designs were put together as a data quilt, creating new constructions of American identity and politic.
