In collaboration with Bare Conductive and Alicja Pytlewska 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.
