Untitled Prototypes (2014) in Media Lab 20th anniversary exhibition: Design Forum between 17.9. – 1.10.2014.
The electronically enhanced knitted sculptural objects respond to touch. They explore the shape and the surface of an imaginary body turned inside out. The process of knitting has informed the structure of each object. The electronic parts make use of Lilypad e-textile components and Arduino programming. The objects are based on capacitive sensing. Artist: Heidi Tikka, electronics: Seppo Väkevä. Over the years Tikka and Väkevä have collaborated on several experimental media art projects.
