The general aim of this project was to create innovative samples with as many materials as I could find. I found interest in the subject of coding, which included technology induced codes such as QR codes, bar codes and morse code as well as looking into coding made for the use of the blind, being braille. I thought that I could tie all of these different codes into one project, experimenting with different processes such as flocking, foiling, weaving and attaching material upon material to make it more three dimensional, therefore perfect for those who are unable to see. After more research into braille, I had the idea to hide messages within my work that could only be seen from someone who cannot see, thereby creating an interactive textile piece and creating patterns behind the code so it would still look appealing within an interior space.
