The Annoying Gum

* The project was exhibited in Ars Electronica 2020

Designed by
Siying Chen(the Royal College of Art,MA Textiles)

The Annoying Gum project is about people’s daily interaction with bubble gum.  The project builds a scene of one-person steps on the gum and trying to get rid of it, and it shows the annoyance of the bubble gum in the form of knitted puppet show. The outcome of the project is to create a movable knitted character that performs itself and interact with people. Infinite toolkit has been used to build the interaction part of the project. The interaction is presented through using the knitted stretch sensor to trigger the motor, which allows the puppet to move.
