Apart from turning thread or yarn into a piece of fabric by forming loops that are pulled through each other by hand with needles or by machine, to knit also means to become closely and firmly joined, to grow together, to combine from various elements.

The first Constant V starts with a knitting machine project : all parts of an open source automatized knitting machine (OpenKnit Wally 120) will be displayed in the window of Rue du Fortstraat 5, along with the bill of materials and some instructions. In the course of February, the parts will slowly morph into a machine.
OpenKnit is a collaborative effort, some open hardware, snippets of free/libre code here and there and an inspired person leading the project, knitting the code, microcontrollers and lots of parts together.

You can visit this window exhibition till 7th March 2015.
