I find myself at the interstices of art, research and design. It surprises me to create ideas by materializing, testing, exhibiting and publishing it as a part of an extensive forthcoming process.

This textile describes a wearable sensor to ‘feel’, detect and indicate electricity. I want to combine material behaviour with human perception to enable communication and to raise specific questions regarding increasing fields of electronic technology and our electrified behaviour.
A woven textile uses electrical energy from its surroundings via influence – by human activity as well as electric fields nearby – and passes it in a comprehensible way to the user. For testing it, the textile is attached at the shoulder of the participant and has exposed yarns, which is to represent hair. If he or she is acting fast, the textile hair stands higher and higher – it charges up until it wants to discharge in its surroundings. If the material received a huge quantity of electric energy, it gets more inflexible. After that it wants to give up its electricity and consequently can interrupt technical devices or give the wearer small electric shocks, after he charged it.
