The sharp and intense “arrow” ikat on the centre field of this piece create optical effects akin to moir矰atterns, which bring to mind the sound of feedback, were the patterns in fact an oscilloscope reading, rather than a textile. At left, Batak shamans wearing ulos as skirt cloths, and shoulder cloths, ca. 1900.The indigo-on-indigo ikat patterning is somehow reminiscent of oscilloscope readings for intense high-frequency sound; a textile you can almost “hear”.
