Raamatust

Ajastul, mil digitaalsed võimalused muutuvad järjest kättesaadavamaks, leiavad paljud tekstiilidisainerid ja tegijad end huvitavast pöördepunktist traditsiooniliste tekstiililoomis protsesside ja uuemate digitehnoloogiate vahel. Erialaspetsialistidel, nii käsitöö- kui disainipraktikutel on võimalik oma töös kasutada digitaalseid protsesse, samas ei soovita kõrvale heita tekstiilile olemuslikke tehnikaid ja oskusi. Nii otsitakse taskaalu läbi tehniliste oskuste ja digitaalsete protsesside keerukate ühenduste. Raamatusse kogutud esseed arutlevad selle ülemineku teemal esteetiliste võimaluste vaatepunktist, mis kerkivad tekstiilidisaineri ette praktiliste, materjali ja täna kättesaadavaid digitaaltehnoloogiaid ühendavate eksperimentide käigus.

Hand Weaving, Digital Tools and Textile Design Education in Denmark

How are the knowledge and practical experience of traditional processes, specifically hand skills, applied in the context of digital jacquard handloom weaving? This lecture discusses ways in which the introduction of a digital jacquard handloom at the Design School Kolding have influenced the textile design education and thereby the craft and practice of hand weaving in Denmark.

Weavers are generally trained in systematic thinking, as they need to operate traditional looms that require a highly organized way of working, threading warp ends on a number of shafts and inserting weft picks in an accurate order. Regarding the organization of weft yarns, countermarch looms have a number of treadles connected to the shafts, whereas manual or computerized dobby looms work with lift plans. This means that the weaver must understand the interaction between shafts and treadles or lift plans in order to achieve the desired woven pattern. All this changed when we got access to the digital jacquard handloom. With this it became possible to use the loom as a dynamic design tool in textile design education. The lecture will exemplify ways in which digital tools in combination with hand skills and expertise represent a great potential for professional development.

A Novel Process within Digitally Printed Textile Design

In her lecture ‘A Novel Process within Digitally Printed Textile Design’ Dr Susan Carden will be describing a new technique discovered during her practice-led doctoral study at the Glasgow School of Art. While working in the studio she noticed a range of textile samples that she had previously been crafting were extremely cool after a number of days. Following a series of experiments conducted at the Electrical Engineering Department of Glasgow University, this effect was found to be an endothermic reaction, a process that absorbs heat from the surrounding area. This new technique was created during the printing process and numerous potential applications were identified including uses in health, fashion and sports products.

Susan’s presentation will describe the stages this discovery took and the implications for both her study and practice-led projects in general when alternative research methods are required. The scientific nature of the discovery was also a challenge in an art school setting, and this will be explored with references to the methodologies and research techniques she needed to adopt in order to successfully complete her doctoral project.

Kolmapäeval 16.11 kell 16.40-17.30 Katherine Townsend

Closely Held Secrets: Embodied Knowledge in Fashion and Textile Practice

This lecture provides an overview of Closely Held Secrets, a research project and exhibition inspired by the hidden working relationship between the artist Grayson Perry and artisan Tony Taylor, which was adopted as a model by a group of individual artists/designers to explore digital embroidery as a new media. It will also discuss emerging methodologies and outcomes from current collaborative research projects that Katherine is involved in:Crafting Anatomies, The Electric Corset and Emotional Fit, which draw upon concealed material resources and embodied human interactions to inform design innovation.

Technology, Tradition, Transition: Defining and Negotiating New Pathways in Contemporary Textile Design Education

Change defines the modern world and Textile practitioners have always adapted to and ultimately thrived in response to the adaptation of new technologies. The fast pace of change in the last 2 decades, largely driven by the wide availability of digital media, and production capability within a broader global context, has necessitated a swift response by educational institutions, and significant reflection on where the priorities might lie for our students. With experience of design education spanning 5 decades I will be mapping a journey through this changing terrain, both as educator, researcher and practitioner, reflecting on the integration of traditional craft skills, digital opportunities and the ability of drawing to facilitate this relationship.

Lektoritest

Dr Nithikul Nimkulrat seob uurimistöö tekstiili praktikaga, keskendudes tehnoloogiliste protsesside läbi sündivatele eksperimentaalsetele teadmistele disaini uurimuse kontekstis. Tema 2009 kaitstud doktoritöö Aalto Ülikoolis uurib tekstiilmaterjali väljendusvõimet, mis jääb nähtavate ja taktiilsete omaduste taha. Nithikul on töötanud Aalto Ülikoolis (2004-2010) ning Loughborough´ Ülikoolis (2011-2013) ning hetkel on ta professor ja tekstiilidisaini osakonna juhataja Eesti Kunstiakadeemias.

Kerry Walton on programmi Tekstiilid: innovatsioon & disain juht Loughborough Ülikoolis, mis on esikohal Suurbritannia ülikoolide pingereas (Guardian League Table 2017 põhjal). Tema praegune uurimistöö tegeleb joonistamise ja tekstiilide vaheliste seostega, mõlemaid uurib ta oma praktilise kogemuse ning kaasaegse tekstiilihariduse raamides.

Dr. Anne Louise Bang on tekstiilidisaini dotsent Koldingi Disainikoolis, Taanis. 2011 sai ta doktorikraadi uurimistööga Emotional Value of Applied Textiles. Tekstiilidisaineri hariduse omandas Bang 1994 ning enne akadeemiasse astumist 2007, töötas ta vabakutselise teksiilikunstnku, -disaineri ja lektorina.

Dr Susan Carden on trükitekstiilide disaini dotsent, Heriot-Watt Ülikoolis ning külalislektor Glasgow Ülikoolis. Tema monograafia Digital Textile Printing: Art, Design, Culture kirjeldab ajaloolist ja kultuurilist konteksti, millelt digitaalne tekstiilitrükk on võrsunud ning teemasid, mida selle kiire kasv tõstatab.

Dr Katherine Townsend, moedisaini, silmuskudumite ja tekstiilidisaini õppejõud Nottingham Trenti Ülikoolis. Tema praegune uurimisprojekt Emotional Fit and The Electric Corset, tegeleb disaini küsimustega moe ja vananemise kontekstis ning kostüümi arhiividega, eesmärgiga informeerida interaktiivsetest kantavatest tehnoloogiatest. Ta juhendab ning osaleb ja väliseksperdina doktoritööde hindamistel, mis tegelevad digitaaltehnoloogiatega, sh 3D silmuskudumine ja kudumine, laserlõikus ning jätkusuutlik mood ja tekstiilidisain. Ta on olnud mitmete näituste kaaskuraator, sh Metallic Sound, Closely Held Secrets and Crafting Anatomies. Alates 2010 on ta ajakirja Craft Research (kirjastus Intellect) kaastoimetaja.
