ISEA 2009 - North Ireland: Interactive Textiles
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS, ARTWORKS AND INITIATIVES, PROJECTS AND WORKSHOPS ETC - 17 NOVEMBER 2008
The theme invites contributions related to creative and technical production and application processes that challenge and extend conventional methods of working with textiles and their perceived material properties. It aims to give consideration to innovative ways to produce and use textiles, materials and forms that are capable of extending and responding to interaction. The panel will profile fibre and fabric structures that promote expression, communication and enhanced or altered behaviours.
What kind of 'second skins', artifacts and constructions can be created that support interactions and context awareness?
Where are the hardware, software and material challenges, the ethical concerns, sustainability issues, aesthetic, cultural and activist potential? Themes may include:
- Information gatherers and communicators
- Mobile and personalized communication systems
- Enhanced aesthetics,
- Adoption strategies
- Wireless sensor networks and wearable computing
- Performance measurements in the medical and sports sectors
