Thumb Fu!

Developed together with Tim Devine.

With the use of conductive fabric and thread we created thumb suits. When the characters touch sound effects are triggered. If somebody is pinned down a countdown begins and then a winning fanfare is played. Thumb Fu! is super enhanced thumb wrestling.

The project is held as a hands-on workshop. The audience is invited to participate by creating their own thumb wrestling costume and to take part in competitions. For the purpose we need a space where people can sit comfortably, sew and play.
