Voice Knitting Machine

Craft & Design Yarncraft


Another knitting project from the Campus 2.0. of Ars Electronica, Gelsomina, uses a hacked knitting machine to translate voice recordings into stitches.

How does it feel when a sweater becomes a medium with which to record your own voice? Gelsomina, the voice knitting machine, makes it possible to transfer individual vocal melodies to a piece of clothing so that they become visible in the different varieties of knitted patterns.
