A textile artist and a pioneer of graphic art, her work is an example of conceptual synchrony between the language of art and the language of technology, especially as she finds a positive combination of computer programming and the operation of looms. The binary image resulting from either technology facilitates the work of the artist as she transitions from textile art to computer art. In her tapestries, Johannesson upturns the dominant art canon by using materials and techniques that are traditionally associated with women and to the arts & crafts world.
