LOVELACE 5, 2022, ink on Jacquard, on Aludibond, 226 x 137 cm
In the series LOVELACE (2022), whose title is inspired by Ada Lovelace, Brunner deals with the earliest form of computer science, the binary punch card system. In an industrial context, this was first used for the production of woven fabrics, when in 1805 Joseph-Marie Jacquard used it to initiate the simplified production of patterned silk fabrics.

Jacquard fabrics form the basis for Brunner's oversized works, which are overlapped with a digitally processed pattern, exposing areas of the fabric (layer 0) or forming a new representation with the patterned fabric underneath (layer 1).
