Innovation project-movie

Keywords  transformation, Interactive, communication, hybrid, fractal Research Question Can interactive and transformative textile bring more convenient and pleasure to our life? Rationale & Context Today’s textile design has developed as the technology advances. Also it shows the very close relationship with new materials, art and design as well as technological and scientific demand for consumers by leading the consumers with the variety to their fixed view. My innovation project based on fractal structures which suggest new fabrication. This formation is continuously changed their form and function as well as pattern and color. 1. Inspiration I was interested in human body and internal organ structure. During the investigation, I found very interesting factor that many parts of human internal organ formed fractal structure which is the smaller portions of the human circulation roughly resemble(to roughly resemble) the general structure. This fractal structures are chaotic forms that are complex even though only a few simple mathematical rules can produce their shapes. (Philip M, 1996) Using this structure, I made 3 dimensional forms through pleating fabric and hand cutting. 2. Experimental Result This fabric looks small pieces. However, when this fabric was wide out, this fabric can change into various shapes and forms. And when lamp in cloth was turned on by lampshade, the pattern and color were changed. The pattern also continually made small shapes by getting the inspiration of the fractal image and designed image of brain, the lungs, line blood vessel and etc or used geometric fractal form into pattern by simplifying pattern. And if the lamp is turned on by using Thermo chromic pigment, temperature is risen so the pattern of lampshade is disappeared or color and form are changed.

interactive textile design

What is a innovation……………………………?

origin: it comes from Latin in and novare- to make something new, to change.
The definitions blow get a bit closer to it meaning
“Innovation is the successful exploitation of new ideas.”
(Innovation Unit, UK Department of Trade and industry,2004).

“Industrial innovation includes the technical, design,
manufacturing , management and commercial activities
involved in the marketing of a new (or improved)
product or the first commercial use of a new
(or improved) process or equipment.”
(chris freemaan, 1982, The Economics of Industrial Innovation,
2nd edn. Frances pinter, London)

What can Be Changed in Innovation? (The 4ps of innovation)
Product innovation
changes in the things (products/ services) which an organization offers;
Process innovation
changes in the ways in which things (products/ services) are created and delivered.
Position innovation
changed in the context in which the products/ services are introduced;
Paradigm innovation
changes in the underlying mental models which frame what the organization does.

What is Textile??

What is a Textile…………………………………?

origin:17c: from Latin: textiles, from texere, texturn to weave.
Dictionary meaning
1. Any cloth or fabric made by weaving or knitting, crocheting,
knotting, or pressing fibers together.

2 a flexible material comprised of a network of natural
or artificial fibers often referred to as thread or yarn.
-From Wikipedia & longman dictionary

Whether or not understanding textiles is ………………
required for personal or for professional purposes,
the key to informed decision making is knowledge
about fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes and the way
in which these are interrelated.

Purposes of textiles…………………………………..…………?

A number of Interior products, clothing, furniture, surgery, conveyor belts, foods filter papers….etc.
-> there is truly no aspect of modern life that is untouched by some area of textiles.
