Reading my body is a sound controller that uses tattoo as a music score. It is a special instrument that combines human body and robotic system into a single entity that is designed to automate creative process in an attempt to represent the artist and his instrument as a creative hybrid.

It is equipped with a 3-dimensional Wii remote controller that uses the OSC protocol in order to give a possibility of additional expression achieved by moving hand in space.

of variations of reading patterns from hand. In addition, all
control parameters and sensors' movements can be programmed to
