pressure sensor B: round 03

I used the line of Meg’s embroidery and went on embroidering with a thicker thread interpreting the motif of the lace.

pressure sensor B: round 02

This round started with Anja’s pencil sketch on super-thin chiffon layer which I used as a guide for my embroidery.

pressure sensor B: round 01

I used a thin layer of chiffon for the first round. I started simple and quick, making a pencil sketch of the lace motif directly on the fabric.

pressure sensor rules

This is how our pressure sensor looks before any layers have been added:

These are the rules and guidelines we thought up for the pressure sensor:

  • each layer has to touch/overlap the previous layer in some way
  • each round uses a thicker material than the previous round
  • extra points for thick + squishy materials
  • try to demonstrate the idea of pressure and force
  • try to encourage the user to touch!
  • neutral colours (ecru)
  • 8 rounds per sensor
  • each day is one round!

The lace we used for the pressure sensor

This is the original lace from the Museum de Kantfabriek.  The greyish threads, of course, are the conductive threads.  The rest is cotton.

We measured the conductivity of 1 m lace. 1m = 23,8ohm
