On the technical side: We programmed the microcontrollers, and our setup involves two Arduinos: One is connected to the multi-touch grid. This arduino is controlled by a processing sketch and sends signals to the other arduino for outputs other than sounds. One is connected to all other input&output components: neopixel LEDs, vibration motors, and fabric

Exercise 7: Research Study Part A

The question that emerges from my last assignment is why should we design responsive and interactive spaces, and how might we create these types of designs? Man-made environments have long stayed static and dominated by the visual elements. Integrating interactive components can change the passive relationship between people and space to an active one. Large

Exercise 6

Lumen is an immersive interactive installation created by Jenny Sabin Studio. It was exhibited at MoMA PS1 as the winner of the Young Architects Program in 2017. The digitally knitted structure uses responsive textile that can emit glowing color at night by absorbing sunlight throughout the day. The installation was created with the concept of

Exercise 5

Phase In, Phase Out is an artwork created by EJTECH studio. Working with electronic textile and experimental interfaces, EJTECH connected materiality and sounds through making textile into a multichannel electroacoustic transducer.  This artwork is related to Judit Eszter Kárpáti’s PhD research Soft Interfaces – Crossmodal Textile Interactions. Artwork: Phase In, Phase Out. Sound installation /
