Artwork by Fabio Antinori in collaboration with Alicja Pytlewska and Bare Conductive.
I was working at Bare Conductive developing the Touch Board. We worked with Fabio to test the board in large scale sensing environments. We provided early versions of the Touch Board and characterised the sensors and parameters for their design.
Installation at the MAK Museum of Applied Arts and Contemporary Art in Vienna.
Contours is a large-scale metaphor for the idea of breathing life into a textile skin. At the core of the interactive tapestries featured in the installation, Contours, are capacitive sensors applied to the objects’ substrates using conductive paint; these sensors react to the presence of a person in their immediate vicinity and can track their movement.
