A pattern station is a standalone interactive video installation that extends and enhances textile patterns through video manipulations and physical objects with embedded sensors. It is a collaborative project between textile designer and artist Cecilia Heffer and interface designer and interaction researcher Bert Bongers.

In this project, we investigate material and aesthetic innovation through engagement with textiles and interactive software.


The work follows a conceptual link between lace patterns, sensor objects, and video material to create ethereal animated environments.


Viewers can explore an extended kaleidoscopic pattern through an algorithm of fragmentation, rotation, mirroring, and magnification. Derived from an Australian landscape, the work follows a conceptual link between lace patterns, sensor objects, and video material to create ethereal animated environments.
