Plaque made of gold with horned lion-griffins from the Achaemenid era (6th - 4th century BCE). The city of Babylon became the capital of the Achaemenid Empire when Cyrus the Great proclaimed himself king of Babylon around 540 BCE. Babylon remained the central office of the Achaemenid Empire until the end of Greco-Persian Wars that made Alexander the Great the new ruler of Babylon.

Glitch Textiles presents: Binary Blankets
A collection of blankets aimed at making visible the hidden data structures that give shape to everyday life. The materiality of our digital age is composed of binary data encoded on electronic devices and transmitted through the airwaves on invisible frequencies of light. As an alternative to the screen, Binary Blankets literally gives you a way to experience the fabric of this otherwise invisible and intangible side of our digital world.
This initial collection features designs from a handful of binary files from programs such as Microsoft Word, iTunes, Google Chrome, and Mac OSX.
Each Design Limited to an Edition of 5.
$350 USD + $15 Shipping (see site for details)
