The carpet is inspired by screen grabs of video editing computer programs. The top number of the carpet is the coordinate number for the city of Chang’ An, the Eastern most city of the Silk Route. The numbers below and left of Chang’An’s coordinates are the distances in different measurements of Chang’an to Istanbul which although was not a city traditionally a part of the Silk Route it’s a city which is very important to the designer. The lower coordinate number is the coordinate of Istanbul. Colours are modern.
