Soft City – Interactive Embroidery

Continuing the subterranean network theme, I added in road networks into a sound hand embroidery. There are a few synth sounds that I made which make the map playable as a bass instrument but I hid a short soundscape made of field recordings that I collected during the research project. I used tiny conductive stitches to trigger the sound responses. I wanted to create an exploratory touch of the work. With the advent of mobile and touchscreen devices, I think it’s important to create works which encourage variation of gesture.  Listen to the soundscape below.
