Felted Terrain: An Interactive Wool Landscape #MusicMonday

From designboom:

influenced by the rolling, mossy landscapes of iceland, ‘felted terrain’ translates the natural environment into a three-dimensional, interactive textile. at a scale as large as an interior, the fabric extends beyond its familiarity as clothing material, and allows users to experience it in unexpected ways. the project was designed and fabricated by yihyun lim, a recent M.Arch graduate of MIT. with ‘felted terrain’ she subverts the idea of knitted fibers as a primitive ‘handicraft’ by integrating soft electronics, computational design, and alternative methods of creation.

a circle packing script–an arrangement of circles on a given surface such that none are overlapping and all touch one another–was used to generate a knitting pattern in rhino3D. once created, conductive thread is knitted together with wool yarn at the center of each circle to create capacitive sensor tips. each point is then stitched back to a lilypad arduino–micro-controller board designed for wearables and e-textiles–forming a soft circuit.
