What the artist says:
This is an audio-interactive tapestry with sensors embedded in the weave which, when triggered by proximity of a viewer's hand, will play sound clips additional to the background looping 50 min soundscape.
The design for Interconnection suggests a confusion of natural and urban or industrial “jungle” and the audio links to this with different natural and man-made sounds. The design and weaving of the tapestry plus the audio production, electronics and computer coding took over two years to complete.
