COLLABORATION: LEARNING AND SHARING KNOWLEDGE FOR SMART TEXTILES

S. Robertson

Royal College of Art (UNITED KINGDOM)
The rise of ‘maker culture’ over the last decade has enabled the social construction of artefacts and a sharing of practice primarily motivated by fun and self-fulfilment. Do it yourself (DIY) - ‘maker culture’ allows anyone the chance to ‘learn through making’ and is an emerging framework for e-textile and smart textile practice. There is an emergent open source approach and sharing of physical work demonstrated through an innovative e-textile swatchbook (2014). The co-created book contains physical examples of e-textiles, and is kept in physical form by each co-creator as a resource for education or research, in addition to being available through an online resource. The e-textile swatchbook is the first of its kind to physically demonstrate the diversity of smart textile research and practice. A textile-based ‘maker culture’ approach offers a social and inclusive way to look at the integration of computation in our everyday lives and at present appears at odds to the harder edged product-led commercial growth and buzz around wearable technology. The paper will explore these opensource models for sharing knowledge for learning in smart textiles.
