Unlike few years ago, eTextiles in market is becoming a norm now. Many of us are engaged in the process of turning the one-off eTextile prototypes to mass-producible product. What are the process of this translation? What kind of design method goes in this process? What are the special techniques necessary for this process? and what are the aesthetics of industrialized eTexitles?
possible sub topics
the impact that production processes have on the aesthetics (look&feel) of the final artifact and how might these affect industrially produced e-textiles?
how do small-scale (for example: hand knitting, flat bed knitting) techniques transfer to large-scale (for example: circular and 3D knitting) production? what kinds of design methods and processes would be involved in such a process?
