Knit Glitch is a creative duo – Daniel Macnish and myself, Claire Pendrigh.
Last weekend we packed up our things and headed out of town for an art weekend – two whole days devoted to exploring and experimenting with materials. Our primary goal was to make, and play with, a sensor that uses conductive thread embedded in felted wool. These sensors will be a central element in our next Knit Glitch project so we wanted to try out a few different techniques!
The most effective was the conductive pompom, which you can see in this video, controlling a sound. The pitch of the sound can actually be controlled by squeezing the pompom!
