Recently I want to explore novel interactive textile surface with the desire to seamlessly couple bits and atoms, human and community, as well as design and technology.

At this stage, I'm doing desk research and organizing. Here is what I have found.

eTextile Summer Camp 

The eTextile Summer Camp is a week-long event that brings together expert practitioners from the fields of eTextiles and Soft Circuitry. 
The theme of 2016 workshop is Softopia(soft-utopia), a place where soft technology is in full function, shifting the paradigm of how technological objects are, how we use them, how we relate with them, and how it forms our society.

Have a look at their exhibitions:
Martin De Bie, Audrey Briot

Anna Blumenkranz


Emilie Giles is an researcher, artist and educator, her work spanning creative technology, crafting and pervasive gaming. She is a Ph.D. student at The Open University exploring how e-textiles can be used as interactive tools for blind and visually impaired people, using participatory design approaches.
