Knitting with glass and wearable tech #WearableWednesday

Thanks to Richard for writing in to share this neat art/fashion piece with us. Nice work! He writes:

I first met Carol Milne through another artist that I help by installing electronics. She wanted to add a few LEDs to a piece for an upcoming show in upstate New York. This was around the time when I was finishing the design for my LEDiva™ controller and Carol’s project looked like the perfect test case for how effective a tool my chip could be for artists. She was quickly convinced when I showed her the many options and how the reactive feedback would add to the experience. This is a wearable project and allowing the lights to react to the movements of the model just adds so much to the effect.

For those who are unfamiliar with Carol’s work, she is an internationally known artist that uses knitting techniques but with glass. Her work is quiet stunning on it’s own and I am happy that I could help to add a bit of embellishment to her latest project.
