Weaving as a one of the oldest cultural techniques has not changed in its principles for centuries but the Jacquard weaving loom where Schumann works on allows the most complex patterns and digital influences to happen. In the Layer Drawings paper yarn is used in free floating parts as a manual contrast and brings tactile, soft and moving references to the pieces.
