Since August 2015, I have joined the ArcInTex ETN project as a Research Fellow – …
Conference paper titled “Investigating Interaction Design for e-Textiles Using Case-Transfer” co-authored by Katharina Bredies at AMBIENCE14.
Single women’s e-crown (project by e-Crafts collective) is exhibited in Ars Lieke 2014 at Kouvola Art Museum.
Short paper on embroidered resistors published in ISWC, 2013.
This is an interface prototype that explores the textile quality of being able to be flipped inside out. Once closed, the loop shape enables one to flip it around from the centre, bringing the yellow and the grey sides alternatively from inside to outside. With each flip, a value is sent with the integrated x-bee module to a computer or another device which can process this information and respond accordingly.

The eCrafts Collective is an initiative by Kati Hyyppä and I. We work in collaboration with different crafters, makers and experts of various fields – in the quest for fascinating, unexpected and delightful combinations of traditional crafts and electronics.
‘Soft Radio’ is a crocheted spherical device that fits in the palm of your hand. It is soft to hold and has a texture of any regular crocheted textile. The materials used include simple electronic components, conductive yarns and regular wool.
This mushroom-like sensor was an exploration for creating soft sound-making interfaces for a project called “Electronic Digital Music Practice for Neurodiverse people” at Aalto ARTS.
