In In preparation of our x-mas market stall in Berlin Kollwitzplatz, on Dec. 16., betterplace junior has started to work on some wonderful merchandize. While Sibylle and Renée have been organising (in close cooperation with our partners from PULK) T-Shirts, USB-sticks and whatnot – all, of course, with the betterplace logo – the kids met with Hanna-L. Wiesener, a young design student at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin, who together with her colleague Magdalena Kohler, has devised a method to convert speech patterns into knitting patterns. For betterplace the designers, calling themselves Trikoton, will produce a scarf and wristbands. In order to make a characteristic pattern, Hanna had the juniors sing a song, recorded it and will now set the knitting machine according to its rhythm and tonality. Philipp was the lead singer, the others joined him in the chorus – and had great fun. If you want to know which song they choose to be woven into wool – visit us on Kollwitzplatz on December 16. 2007.
