What happens when senses are cross-wired in the brain? Can data convey different meaning when interpreted as a purely visual object? What other ways of understanding a single piece of data could there be?
 The TK 730 converts a piece of information, in this case, words, into a knitted code that can be worn. It decodes the typed word and re-encodes it into the pattern of the knitwork in a sort of encryption procedure.
 Our starting point for this encoding were the words text and textile. These words share the same origin - both come from the Latin texere, which means "to weave." From this premise, one can observe many things in common between them. Knitted textile work is comprised of lines and points, just like a piece of text.
