I’ve tested some patches for making and designing electronics on the body. My concept of “squishy” now focuses on the amorphous. (I have narrowed the concept down to one thread -otherwise there is just too much to explore!). The amorphous of “squishyness” is without a clearly defined shape. And in this case I would like to explore how shapes are defined through the interaction with people.

There are two approaches to this which I try to explore through etextiles.

1. is the physical, situated, embodied relation with people that shapes the material of patch
2. is the lived, experiential relation with people that shapes the idea of the patch
