Iteration: In-Sync


  • transmission of touch was limited to only sitting up and down
  • sound was almost non-existent
  • distance was too close for much impact


  • overhead shelter that doubles up as simple mode of interaction; grid of free-moving leaves above, supported by net-like structure, users can tug on the net either side, like a primitive and limited form of interaction
  • a double sided acoustic guitar in the middle, strummable from both sides
  • sonification of movement; use of pickups to amplify movement sounds, strategically placed on the undersides of the seating area and cloth
  • responsive musical chair; could encourage users to ‘play’ with the seat more, use of fabric sensing grid
  • digitalisation of communication cone.
