Weaver and Music Box

Weavers and Music Boxes (early Biophilia idea)

This machine has 2 or 3 main parts.
The Music Box – which may contain other instruments, like a trompong or tuned strings.
The Music Sheet – which contains music encoded into it by weaving, punched holes, or interwoven beads.
The Weaver – which we can see weaving or knitting the music in real-time.

The weaver conveys a sense of care and mindfulness, but also an unknowable intelligence, like watching the careful mandibles of an insect.
