Living in a house prototype as an approach to artistic research
Using seeds as a dynamic material in textile design as a natural approach towards smart textiles. This has been proposed by Svenja Keune, who recently defended her doctoral dissertation. Her artistic research wants to inspire us to find more sustainable ways to design – and live.
Sustainable development should not be seen just as something “important.” It should be essential. With this approach, Romy Kaiser initiated her final thesis project on the Master’s Programme in Fashion and Textile Design, Specialisation in Textile Design. This resulted in a grant for integrating sustainable development into the thesis.
Design is not just what we see and feel. Jyoti Kapur, doctorate in Textile Design at the Swedish School of Textiles, shows how it is possible to design using smells for a positive overall experience of a built space.
