visible sound sewing machine by sounds butter

the interactive design group sounds butter wanted to create a new way to make sound visible. while things like equalizers and sub-titles already visualize sound, they sought to find a way to make sound physical.
using an old sewing machine as a basis, they conceptualized a prototype, which would take sound input and convert it into a sound wave of thread on textile. the sewing machine is synonymous with producing products in industry and thus served as a fitting analogy for the project.
