Vienna Design Week #2
"Soundweaving" is a student project at the Monoly-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest (Hungary) and conceived as an interdisciplinary, experimental artwork. Its core idea is to transform the traditional motifs and execution of cross-stitch embroidery familiar in Hungarian embroidery into sound by transposing them through a music automat with punch cards. The designers themselves punched holes with motifs from cross-stitch embroidery into the loops of the music automat. During the transformation, the embroidery became laser-fashioned textiles, the embroidery patterns melodies.
