Abstract [en]

This work deals with Smart Textiles in interaction with the body. We design textiles and outfits as tools that can influence fashion and textile design. Central to our work is that artistic envisioning can point to new possibilities and values, in which we want to stress the importance of combining traditional materials and methods with contemporary and future functions in order to obtain sustainable ideas. The film documents a performance, where dancers create a link between the body, the textile material and the room surrounding the body. The textile material and the garment are to inspire movement that, in turn, creates development; when a person wears the garment and moves in a certain way or touches other persons, the visual expression of the room changes through an electronic signal. In this case, the colour of the pattern of the textile draping changes to the static pattern that is printed on the person’s outfit. The point of the show was to show possibilities of non-static and dynamic design through scenic expression.

Abstract [en]

Computation and new materials are entering the world of textiles, challenging our view on the textile material. As new techniques and electrically conductive fibres enable the design of textile circuits and computationally active textiles [2], the areas of smart textile design and interaction design start to merge. Wearable computing [cf.1], the notion of moving computational tools directly onto the body, might have been the first approach to bring computation technology closer to the area of clothing.. In an approach to investigate new enhanced forms of expressional interaction through textiles, the relationship between tactile and visual aesthetical properties are explored in the present paper. Textile Dimensions, an interactive set of textiles, shows how clothes and textiles become interfaces themselves, able to sense and react on external stimuli in expressive ways.

Abstract [en]

In this project we create a link between body, textile material and space. Textiles and garments shall inspire to motion that generates variability. When a body moves through a space, touches other bodies and parts of its garment, it affects the visual expression in the room. More specifically the background changes and adapts partially to the pattern of the garments. The base for our investigation is to perform artistic work with the expression of set design in the centre, that shows the possibilities, matters and values of fashion and textile design beyond the traditional boundaries. The tapestry is weawed in cotton, steel and wool. Print in heat sensitive pigment (supplier Variotherm Zenit Konsthantverk AB). The dresses are knitted in cotton and silverthreads. Acknowledgements: The burn-out experiments were made at IFP Research in Borås. The knitted samples and the tablecloth were made together with Tommy Martinsson and Folke Sandvik at the knitting department at the Swedish School of Textiles, University College of Borås.

Abstract [en]

Textile can be more than just patterns and washability. Today it can have other functions, visible or hidden and they can be interactive. Textile has simply become high-tech. What used to be considered science fiction is today reality. The exhibition TEXTILE POSSIBILITIES focuses on experiments that explores the possibilities that modern textile materials offers. There are no actual products on display in the exhibition, instead the latest research from textile is shown. For instance, visitors can experience how electricity, heat and movements alter colours and structures within the textiles. The exhibition shows the research process and lets the visitor interact with the different textile prototypes. The exhibition TEXTILE POSSIBILITIES aims to inspire, convey knowledge and to visualise a possible textile development. It shows a way for how experimental design research through collaboration with the commercial community can affect and build it’s own future here in Sweden.

Amy Bondesson

Fashion designer

Teaches in the field of textile and performs artistic work.

Amy is interested in the outcome of the motion that the human body can create; expression of form in interaction with space.

Delia Dumitrescu

The Swedish School of Textiles, University College of Borås, Sweden

Delia Dumitrescu graduated from the Architecture Institute in Bucharest in 2005. Since then she has continued with her education as a master student in Textile design at the Swedish School of Textiles. Her Master Degree work focuses on offering an innovative view on textiles design. The project combines the knowledge of the two fields architecture and textile design as a possible way to redefine our relationship with the physical environment.

Hanna Landin

PhD Student, Interaction Design,

Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers

Explores how one can relate to form, expressions and aesthetics within interaction design. For example looking at how we can relate to form when

it is not only about space but also time, and when the form of an interactive thing containing computational technology can change depending on

how someone chooses to interact with the thing. Also considering how we as designers can relate to such aspects as anxiety, alienation, trust and indifference etc.

Christian Mohr

Works normaly with IT at the University College of Borås an got a burning intrest for electronic and technology issues. Looking forward to an future where electronic will be more integrated in new materials and applications.

Anna Persson

PhD student, Interaction design

The Swedish School of Textiles, University College of Borås, Sweden

Explores ways to integrate electronics and information technology in knitted textiles from an interaction design point of view.

Linda Worbin

PhD student, Textile and Interaction design

The Swedish School of Textiles, University College of Borås, Sweden

In 2006 the licentiate thesis ”Dynamic Textile Patterns- designing with smart textiles” were presented. The work aims to increase the understanding of new dimensions concerning aesthetics in the area of Smart Textiles. By designing and building prototypes, possible visions for how we may design textiles in the future are visualised.

The exhibition is co-produced with The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås and Smart Textiles, a Vinnväxt initiative managed by Vinnova.
