The Flickering Unicorn
Finally! It’s here! The full Instructable for the Flickering Unicorn! This was a fun little project post-wedding dress construction. This unicorn costume employs eTextile sensor construction techniques to control the behavior of the RGB LED horn. The mane is a stroke sensor constructed from conductive and non-conductive yarn using a loop stitch technique. By stroking […]

E-Textile Swatch: Rose Resistance
Decorative elements can play an integral role as sensors in smart garments. The rose is a ubiquitous form of ornamentation across many craft practices, especially in crochet. My goal is to explore one technique for three dimensional sensor construction in the form of a crochet rose. Made with a combination of resistive, conductive, and wool […]

POV Fan Prototype
This project centers around a collection of computationally and electronically enhanced hand fans, which function as props for a speculative storytelling process called “hacking historical objects”. These handcrafted objects carry with them an embedded narrative, which the “hacking” process aims to access and recontextualize. The modified fans are designed to present a new potential future […]
