Abstract

Sensory Threads is a pair of interlinked experiences, which explore the way in which sensing can give us insight into how our bodies are a part of their wider environment. Sensory Threads seeks to investigate what happens when wearables move beyond being technologies designed for individuals and are transformed into tools of ‘collective sensing'. It aims to stimulate participants' behaviours through their own emergent and unpredictable actions in an environment, not by pre-defined choices determined in advance by the project's makers or by ‘interesting' geographic sites. This article describes the design of this artwork, which is currently in prototype form.
