Textile - Interesting Interactive Sculpture.

Textile is an amazing interactive sculpture created by Jean Shin along with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia. For the making of this 2.6 ft h x 4 ft w x 20.4 ft d; 22,528 reused computer keycaps, 192 custom keycaps, fabric, customized active keyboard, interactive software, video projection and painted aluminum were used, and this will also make it the world's longest keypad. The keys spelt out a line-by-line transcript of the email communication the artists had regarding the creation of the artwork, allowing the sculpture to archive its own making! The first three rows of emails feature active keys which allows visitors to key in their own message which are projected onto the opposite side of the fabric. The interactive artwork was created as a comment on the extent of pervasiveness of emails and other virtual communications has in our lives.
