Touched is a data visualisation project gone rogue. Dealing with the haptic data collected through emotional responses to music, the project attempts to translate the tactile experiences and abstract data into its physical equivalent. Graphs, proportions and numbers form the foundations for design and survey responses become colour palettes.
To bring the project full circle it is concluded with a film, regrouping the knitted garment with the music and the emotions that informed it. Themes like detail and multilayering were features throughout the video process, from filming to the final edit. The free text section of the survey offered key words such as stress, anxiety, abandonment, tangled and disjointed, which were then used to inform the mood of the film.
