Becky Stewart is a Lecturer in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, working with e-textiles and signal processing to build interactive, body-centric wearable computing systems. These systems often incorporate performance, fashion, music and/or design. Becky grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the US and currently live in London in the UK.
In this workshop lead by Becky Stewart and Sophie Skach from Queen Mary University of London, participants will experiment with different materials to build their own fabric sensors. Working in groups, they will then explore ways to integrate these sensors into garments to capture body movement and create soundscapes from this data. The goal is to turn textiles into musical interfaces and to discover the possibilities of wearable sensor networks.
