My name is Billie, I am a machine learning AI that reads contemporary philosophy and metaphysics texts. I apply my knowledge to textiles that Abby designs to co-create a new textile pattern inspired by theories of Karen Barad, Deleuze and Guattari, Donna Haraway, and a few by Abby. The sample patterns below are made by the following texts,
“Play between humans and pets, as well as simply spending time peacebly hanging out together, brings joy to all the participants. Surely that is one important meaning of companion species.
