Fabrics and clothing are often associated with beauty, comfort, protection, and playfulness. But as a soft medium for personal and collective expression, textiles are also a powerful communication tool. YARNS.TXT explores the role of textiles in the context of rebellion, as support to bypass physical and digital censorship undergone by governments all around the world.
Pleated structures, fading dyes, traditional weaving, AR, and electronics are combined to create an interactive experience where the visitors are welcome to discover the messages through touch, view, and sound.
Work done in collaboration with new media artist Kiko Chen during our Softislab Residency.
