Soft Synesthetic Synthesis

E-textile workshop exploring touch and sound

How are our senses connected to one another? How could we translate touch into sound?

The aim of this two-day workshop was to explore the sonification of touch by creating haptic textile instruments. Participating artists and designers learned how to design and construct simple electronic textile circuits using various conductive soft materials and the Arduino programming environment.

The workshop was organised 31 June — 1 July 2021 in collaboration with the Softislab pilot project.
