Binary pairs run through Bittman’s work. “Weaving is automatically a set of binary pairs, the way the cloth is constructed, the warp or the weft is always going to be on top for each pixel area or yarn interlacement.” And there’s the binary of the black and white color direction that she often uses. “Black and white works as the best camouflage for marrying the painted portions to the textile surface because it’s so high contrast that your eye picks up on the black and white contrast before it picks up on the material contrast.”
