Chromosonic is a textile structure, an electronic interface, and a sensitive second skin. The digital world alters genres, steps out to the reality. In a time of screens, which pretend to be immaterial and untactile, we tend to forget that these interfaces are our primary methods and objects of organizing and interacting with the world. The flatness of the screen is materializing within reality, and turned to structure of threads. The screen printed glitches appear on a hand woven, flexible textile. A glitch is a short-lived fault in a system, many times due to mistranslation, or loss of information. Chromosonic reflects on the exponential growth of digitalisation in the physical world.
