Imagine Communication between objects through their tactile properties
sensors to the world (other machines, human and environment)
plan to use a spin drum on the top of the servo A. work with catch dreamer format as it spin, and automata spinner Robert Race, carousel toy , spin
Plan to encapsulate Two servo motors, A and B
Environment produce shadow/ sound/ light …… and trigger A
A motor on
A turn and hit B ( every time or randomly)
B motor on
B produce sound
<When Sensing EMF from electronic devices you have on you
The nodes move A / Nodes = textile + SERVO / Osc control / Nodes sound B , if no EMF>
<Building a matrix ( resisitive or capacitive) sensors > , in order to map touch by machines, exchanging OSC messages
all about capacitive versus resistive sensors Capacitive elastomer sensors can be assembled by sandwiching elastomer dielectric layers between elastomer electrodes that are filled with conducting particles. Resistance strain gauges, commercially available from the early 1940s, are now predominantly fabricated from metal foil . Such strain gauges are now ubiquitous and used for characterizing small mechanical strains in rigid engineering structures, force (load) cells, scales for weighing, and the engineering testing of metals and rigid composites. What is measured is the change in the gauge resistance

A catalogue of errors, by David Griffiths and Alex McLean : This article presents a series of informal experiments in software and weaving, most of which were conducted as part of the Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves project.
In relation to my essay proposal about the ”NetWork : the Ultimate Mask “
Find the Poetic Space of the Network , I have the intention is to build up some Knitted cells units. I would like to be able to stitch them together to make either a costume , a quilt , a mask, a 3D sculpture , a sensitive environment, or reactive bodies for puppets…
The cells will have different functions , and different structures . They could store visual memories . They could produce or record sounds, be thermo sensitives. They could produce lights etc…
Combined and stiched together they form a body. Each of this unit has its own functions and life, stich together they form a collective and have a collective behaviour. Individually they have a autonomous behaviour.
Like puppets can do one thing , dancing versus walking, or a mask is expressing one quality ( neutral, clown, buffon ….) each type of K cells have limited functions , either data feed, ligth or sound. their design should reflect this particular feature.
Decide whether together they are stronger or weaker ? amplification process? they can also relate to each other remotely ie not stitch together.
>Build K cells in electronics and transpose into soft e textile
> Build two families KL, knitted light fiber cells .and KA knitted audio fiber cells
Wearable Antennae Speaker FM Transmitter (KA)
Puppetry and mask making process of animating objects
then WA weaved audio cells
combine the two families in a collective structure
“Variables and functions”:
To achieve the design of each family of K cells, I will use ( list to be completed)
mapping technology ( Max/ MSP, Mad Mapper)
generative code to find interesting patterns for each type of cells
knitted and weaving iterations , exploring different techniques ( manual or computarized) and material ( copper, wool, paper, cord…)
While researching about network embodiment , I came across an article written by Justin Marshall, Jon Rogers and Jayne Wallace . The authors investigate how craft sensibility” can extend beyond the scope of material interaction, to engagement with people and situations as a broadly empathetic way of exploring the world. ” Their proposition is to “create a crafted digital future” .
