This workshop aims to explore the senses, by transforming the experience of sound from the auditory to the tactile and visual. How can we reimagine the experience of sound via textiles and other material substrates? We will look at different computational and electronic platforms for integrating sound creation capabilities into textiles and learn different methods of creating soft speakers, affording opportunities for sound to be worn, felt & viewed in different ways.
Multi-disciplinary artist RythÂ Kesselring will discuss her research and recent projects, along with other work in this field. She will then demonstrate the use and capabilities of several components that can facilitate the inclusion of sound into a textile wearable / artwork. We will also look at different textile speaker coils and magnet configurations in relation to the body to experience the sound in different ways.
*This workshop has no pre-requisite skill set and is open to all Milieux Research clusters.
