Currently I’m working on a woven piece that puts a new spin on a traditional technique. This work draws on the Ikat technique of resist-dyeing warp and weft fibres before working them on the loom. In place of the dye I am using a unique thermochromic solution that will bring about colour change behaviours in the final work. The work will be driven by an Arduino + Wifi connection for actuation based on a real-time data set (TBA). Electronics kindly supplied by my friends at Farnell UK. Finished work to be posted soon! Stay tuned!
