Experimental electronic textile project by Judit Eszter Karpati with fabric that changes it’s colours with the help of an Arduino - video embedded below:
CHROMOSONIC project is an electronic textile that changes color, using the Arduino open-source platform.
The dynamic changes in the textile color derive from processed sound files. Silkscreen was used to cover the textile in a dye that changes with temperature. Sound makes the nichrome wires woven into the fabric heat up, changing the pattern.
The project investigates the relationship between digital world and textile arts, the everchanging boundaries between the digital and physical world.How the world of digital media becomes tangible through the textile medium. My intention was the broadening the field of textile craft and design, bringing together different mediums and looking for new possibilities in textile design. The project mixing different areas: textile design, electronics, IT.
The chromosonic project has it’s own Tumblr blog, where you can find out more here
