Prof. Dr. Salvinija Petrulytė and Prof. Dr. Donatas Petrulis, the lecturers of Kaunas University of Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Design (Lithuania) present the course Synergy of Science, Art and Technology for Innovative Materials Dedicated for Knowledge Driven Environment in Estonian Academy of Arts. The teaching mobility (August 22-26) is supported by NORDPLUS Higher Education’2016 Programme (Nordic Council of Ministers).
Textile as an interdisciplinary subject incorporates the science – physics, biotechnology, computer science, microelectronics, polymer chemistry, materials science as well as the arts. Textiles of 21st century are multifunctional products combining various tasks in our social context. Intelligent materials and systems are capable to sense and respond to the environment stimuli, such as mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, magnetic or other in a predictable and useful manner. So, they can serve as a mean to increase the potentiality of knowledge driven environment over the world. The future lies in the potential of combining artistic creation and advanced technologies.
