CIDZIY investigates the relationships between textiles, architecture, improvisation, performance and the body. Woven on a Jaquard loom, using broché technique to weave conductive thread acting as capacitive sensing electrodes, this 6 meters long tapestry acts as a body transducer, transforming movement, proximity, touch and contact into a reactive sound scape evolving over time.
This architecture-scale sensate weave acts as agent co-performing with curious visitors - creating an improvised serendipitous play - where the textile itself, inciting for touch and tactile discovery, transforms physical impulses and frictions into an acoustic performance.
