The garment is part of the Aeolia project on stretch sensing on the body. Whereas the backs used commercially available material, this piece uses our own explorations in knitted stretch sensing, created by Martha Glazzard at Nottingham Trent University using conductive yarn from Bekaert.
The garment is also an exploration in fit and the control of stretch over the body, to maximise the effectiveness of the sensors placed at the elbow and the underarm. It was made specifically for cellist Peter Gregson for the occasion of New Media Scotland’s 10th anniversary event at the CCA, Glasgow last year.
