Research Study: Part A

I was inspired by one of the papers presented in class by Yanwen: Weaving a Second Skin. I want to take a deep look into the proposed on-skin interfaces through weaving and further explore the domain of integrating circuits into weaving to invent novel interaction/sensing technology . For the artistic objective, I’m curious to see patterns explicitly showing some parts of the circuits and mixing electronics with traditional yarn in the weaved fabric.
