Electrical Burn-outs: a Technique to Design Knitted Dynamic Textile Patterns
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
In this practice-based experimental design research
project a tablecloth reacting on external signals is
designed. The tablecloth is connected to mobile phones
and reacts to incoming calls and messages with burned
out patterns. Due to the mobile phone activity, changes
in colour and structure appear in the table-cloth.
The tablecloth is a way to explore visual and tactile
changes in a textile surface. It is also a way to
investigate how our relation to mobile phones and
mobile phone technology is affected by the way the
phones are being expressed.

The project is financed by Smart Textiles, an initiative
in the Vinnväxt Vinnova programme. 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.2015-12-222015-12-22
