The Fusion of Textiles, Art & Technology Lecture coming soon
27
Mar '08
The Fusion of Textiles, Art & Technology exhibition is scheduled to be held on May 18, 2008.

Not everything interesting in textiles was invented in the past. In fact there is a revolution in textiles brewing which combines high tech materials and historical textile techniques to fabricate flexible electronic devices and unique active art forms.

During this lecture, Dr. Patricia Wilson will explore how a loosely allied group of engineers and artists have transformed the traditional idea of what a "textile" can do.
