Chromosonic is an electronic textile that changes color, using the Arduino open‑source platform. The dynamic changes in the textile color derive from processed sound files. Silkscreen was used to cover the textile in a dye that changes with the temperature. Sound makes the nichrome wires woven into the fabric heat up, changing the pattern. Although the temperature of the surroundings unfortunately affects Chromosonic’s performance, the work stands out with its greatest asset – the creative combination of traditional weaving craftsmanship and digital media.
