We were invited to exhibit our Lace Sensor Dresses at the StAnza Poetry Festival in St Andrews, Scotland. The festival ran from 6-10 March 2013 and Anja went to represent our project.

I ended up using this very thick spongy felt material in a loop like the lace on it. The height is nearly the same as the pressure sensor itself.
To make the layer thick I made in itself two layer of embroidered feld together.
I used the same crochet technique with different thicknesses of thread which I stitched on a layer of felt in the wave-form of the lace.
How to get to a thicker string? I just remembered a cord-making technique I used to do as a child. With this cord I followed the rough form of the lace and the previous layer.
It’s another abstract interpretation with a giant cross-stitch and using thick string.
I used the line of Meg’s embroidery and went on embroidering with a thicker thread interpreting the motif of the lace.
