In art and design practices, materials and technology are means of expression as well as sources
of inspiration. On the other hand, in technical development processes art and design
provide meaning, direction and expressions of functionality. In some sense this duality of
perspectives is what defines the loci where art, design and technology meet. Over the
past ten years, the Swedish School of Textiles have taken part in the ongoing discussion
on how practice-based research can further develop our understanding of the
expressiveness inherent in new materials and new technology. In this context it is clear
that art, design and technology meet in the lab and in the workshop. However, for
discussions across borders between the perspectives of art, design and technology we need
meeting places outside of the labs and the workshops as well. The Ambience exhibition is an
exercise in building such a meeting place, but also an exercise in providing conference space
for interaction between artistic practice and theory.
As designers and artists working within a research setting, we often work in parallel with
writing, presenting conference papers and exhibiting in different arenas. It is then only natural
to include two ways of presenting results at a conference for artistic research; to let paper
presentations and exhibition interact to create wider perspectives and deeper understanding.
All exhibition contributions have been subject to a peer review process similar to the review
process paper submissions are subjected to. And just as for paper submissions, reviews focus
on originality and skills with respect to both results and presentation.
This exhibition is the first in the series of Ambience conferences. The conference is
organized by the University of Borås in cooperation with Tampere University of Technology
and is a part of the Smart Textiles Initiative – www.smarttextiles.se
In this catalogue you will find images, artist statements and/or project descriptions presenting
the works displayed at the exhibition.
