Stitching Worlds connects the shared artistic research territory between arts, design, open culture, digital fabrication, information technology and electronics to the engineering and scientific methodologies of textile technology.
The project investigates textile technology as a controversial means for digital fabrication, particularly of the electronic object, based on two premises explored in former artistic research.
Stitching Worlds is an artistic research project funded by the Program for Arts-Based Research (PEEK) of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). The project is hosted by the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Institute of Design, Department of Industrial Design 2. The project duration is 30 months, from May 2014 through October 2016.
