Breathing Knits

MIT, Creative Computation
Instructor: Axel Killian

Inhale. Exhale. The simple two step action that keeps the human body alive. The oxygen we breath is invisible, yet all encompassing. Our only indication of its existence is through the inflation/deflation of our physical forms.

This project explores the relationship between kinetic inflation and knit structure. Using two different materials: elastic and monofilament, the fabric is brought to life in unexpected ways based on each materials distinct characteristics.
