Abstract or Description

This paper presents a methodology for data extraction and sound production derived from cloth that prompts “improvised play” rather than rigid interaction metaphors based on preexisting cognitive models. The research described in this paper is a part of a larger effort to uncover the possibilities of using sound to prompt emergent play behavior with pliable materials. This particular account documents the interactivation of a stretched elastic cloth with an integrated sensor array called the “Blanket”.
