In collaboration with Bare Conductive and Alicja Pytlewska Screenprint, capacitive sensing, intercative tapestries, soundsystem, custom code
— The MAK Museum of Applied Arts and Contemporary Art in Vienna invited the London based creative laboratory Bare Conductive to team up with Fabio Antinori and Alicja Pytlewska in order to develop 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.

— A constantly modulated data driven ambient soundscape composed in real time and reminiscent of a medical research environment, serves as an acoustic feedback loop that alludes to the relation-ship between science and the body.
