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.

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

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.
