paper circuit


I saw this work online some time ago, but someone linked again to it today and I was reminded of how much I love it. When the origami shape is folded, patches of conductive fabric sewn to the paper touch and connect a circuit, and a recording of someone singing a note plays. When more than one patch touches, more than one note is heard, making chords. Just the way the stitched circuits have some irregularities, so do the voices, making the music subtler and more interesting. Watch and listen to the video on Joo Youn Paek's website, and you'll see what I mean.
