a material interpretation of the digital game “Flow”, where a single player must connect same colored dots into one continuous line. This must be done while taking into consideration leaving the right amount of space on the board for other colors, and taking care not to cross over and disconnect existing lines. In this project, the board used is a piece of fabric on which there has been printed a level from the original game, with the use of thermochromic printing paste. The threads used to form the lines are conductive, thus heating up once the dots have been connected, and revealing the colors underneath.
