Sensing Textures: Tactile Resistance

ISWC '21: Proceedings of the 2021 ACM International Symposium on Wearable ComputersSeptember 2021Pages 211–215

Sensing Textures: Tactile Resistance is a collection of eight swatches comprised of e-textile sensors and actuators that probe ideas around the politics of crafting handmade technological artifacts. By engaging hands-on with the production of these artifacts, this work aims to reflect on alternative modes of world-building that allow for speculation about how bespoke technology can look and feel like when it is highly personalized. These eight swatches explore different crafting techniques while responding to personal narratives, questions about how we perceive the world and how we embody the making of technology collectively in a critical manner.
