E-Textile Particle Decay Embroidery

I got a notion in my head to embroider a bubble field – a representation of particle decay paths as they spiral off into oblivion. I’ve found them fascinating and beautiful.

If you’d like to learn more about them, check here for information on particle decay and here for information on detecting and gathering data on the particles.

I was without a frame to embroider, so I took this:

Cut out the racket strings:

Took these:

Clamped my fabric with the binder clips to the frame of the racket:

Using conductive thread, I embroidered particle decay paths ending in mini LEDs.

Finished product!

Now to frame it.
