Text and Iles

Text and Iles, an interactive installation, consists of two capacitive knitted jumpers that react to being touched. They respond to visitors’ caresses with audio recordings of particles of a poem. This creates a dialogue not just between the garments, but also between the clothing and its wearers, commenting on the relationship between textile and tactile intimacy.
