Transition: Rethinking Textiles and Surfaces
November 26th and 27th 2014
The University of Huddersfield (UK)
Textiles and Surfaces have surrounded us in different forms for millennia. From the use of fibres and materials sourced and made from bark, wood, sand, glass, bone and skin to multi-structural and unconventional materials for interior, architectural and wearable functional design, textiles and surfaces have inspired and evolved our relationships with materials, space and form. This conference proposes to explore the future of textiles and surfaces within different industries and contexts. The conference aims to examine current and future developments in the field asking: how might we re-think textiles and surfaces in a climate of transition?
