By entering the space, one hears the overlapping sounds of sewing machines. Then, you notice a discarded pile of clothes. On top of the pile, there is a moveable part of the installation – an interactive hat. The object is filled with photoresistor sensors which react when worn and turning off the noise of sewing machines to then trigger a range of stories spoken by garment workers. To create the experience, the photoresistors sent the signal to Arduino Live 11 which then triggers stories of female workers. A video projection of the translation of the spoken text is also displayed in the space.
