Continuing her research into textile antennas and fractal geometry as a means to detect radio-frequency (RF) transmissions, in Embodied RF Ecologies, Afroditi Psarra aims speculate about the body as an agent of power in a post-capitalist world, and to re-interpret transmission technologies through handmade crafting techniques.

Wearable Synthesizer: Modifying open source code with the use of E-textiles by William Perry

This wearable synth was inspired by the complexity of human emotions in conjunction with the comfort of human touch.
