Abstract [en]

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.
