M1.1.P Doremindful

Do re mi ndful creates a musical experience between a usual sewing machine and the maker. This novel interaction creates a possibility of redefining the identity of this everyday object and invites thought about relationships between machines and humans.

The product was developed with a sewing machine with an embroidery foot for beginners to assist them in overcoming their fear of working with a new machine. Simultaneously, the system helps to reinvent the relationship between a professional maker and their familiar machine. 

Reflection

The project introduced me to approaching technology as a non-human companion. The project was important to understand how we can approach technology in a more than human mindset and reimagine the relationship we have and could have with them. This was relevant during my M2.1 project and my Final Master project, in which I reimagined the relationships we have with technologies.
