Sound is the sense with the strongest evocative power and a considerable emotional trigger. Our environment is full of sound but as yet is seldom deliberately produced within textiles and fashion. Textiles are often used to suppress sound, but Cindy Wang shows what sounds can be made with the use of various textiles.
Cindy Wang’s intention is to engineer textiles through traditional craft techniques to produce unexpected sounds. Extending the application of materials to the art of physical performance, she aim to encourage an appreciation of possibilities in textiles beyond the visual and tactile – a third sonic dimension.
