For electronic textile crafters, an apparent lack of control and elements of surprise when working with fibres and threads are a familiar occurrence. Often, the process of making is undetermined firstly, and characterised by a dynamic process of negotiation between the textile and the crafter through multi-sensory engaging with material properties and tools.
This talk explores the making, and the making sense of pleated e-textiles as complex dynamic sensing structures. Results from the research project 'Folded Electronic Textiles for Wearable Technology’, currently undertaken at Berlin University of the Arts and Einstein Center Digital Future will be introduced and discussed.
This research seminar will be given by IAS Residential Fellow Dr Berit Greinke
