DIGITAL TEXTILES - Tactile expression in a virtual environment.
Master Degree work in Textile & fashion Design, Swedish School of textiles. 2021.
What if fibres were strings of numbers?
Arrays of digits turned into threads,
Not taking a specific form but constantly evolving.
From a fashion and textile designers point of view, Digital Textiles is an exploration of tactile expressions in a virtual environment. Digital Textiles builds on new ideas on material thinking with an emphasis on the divergence of aesthetic expressions. It explores the crossing between traditional craft and complex computer-generated structures. The idea is to reimagine how textiles are designed and made. The work consists of a collection of seven digital artefacts developed from CGI artwork of classical tartan patterns.
The aim of the work is to broaden the textile design field by exploring the definition of textiles through digital materiality with a focus on computer-generated images and surfaces in 3d software.
