This interactive textile was weaving on back-strap loom. It has a complex structure that includes, within it, materials conductors such as copper, which when affected with a little electricity become touch sensors, reacting with the proximity of people. This proximity generates data, that is “translated” by a micro-controller and are sonorized according to the woven patterns.
