Materials: Polymer optical fibre; paper yarn; adhesive, paper-based non-woven; white or RGB LED; battery or electrical source.
Techniques: Aligning fibre and yarn using warping stakes; laser etching; coupling optical fibres to a light source.

Description: The light-emitting paper was developed during a con-TEXT designer-maker residency at Heriot-Watt University, funded by the Creative Art Business Network (CABN) Scotland. The material was being developed for a digital (bulbless) lighting prototype in collaboration with Danish designer, Tom Rossau. It is also part of on-going design work exploiting optical fibre technology within aesthetically-focussed, light-emitting textiles.
