Interactive Experience : Illumin-Loom

Operate a weaving loom from the future and create your own illuminated textile images in CHAT Arcade! Illumin-Loom is a walk-in interactive experience where visitors can design unique patterns on colourful light strips. The finished creation will be exported as a digital image to download. Visitors can also choose to print the image as heat transfer stickers, and in our 30-Minute Making workshop, iron it onto a special tote bag. Alternatively, visitors can bring home the sticker and follow the provided instructions to iron it onto a textile item of their own choice.

The light strips of Illumin-Loom simulate the threads in a fabric while alluding to the historical relationship between digital computation and textile technology. Additionally, the library of contemporary motifs and background patterns is inspired by Hong Kong’s textile heritage, paying homage to the history of The Mills as a former spinning factory.
