The performance is centered on a textile interface, Fluiiid, which collects data through 3D positional tracking, and processes the data to control sound and motion graphics. Video mapping enables the visuals to appear at the exact position where the gestures are performed.

The design of the interface aims at intuitive interaction. Its conductive fabric provides a set of twenty-four capacitive touch sensors. Conductive threads are used to connect the sensors to the main circuit board. A motion-tracking device collects the quaternion data. The raw data is collected through a micro-controller, Arduino, and then translated into positional information. By moving the hands along the interface body while pulling the fabric in different directions, the performer manipulates sound effects and visuals in Max, Ableton Live, and Processing. The visuals are mapped to where the gestures are performed on the interface body.
