In the meantime here are a couple of textile-related things that I really like -- just hadn't had the chance to tell anyone yet.
|The yaks of Bijou Basin Ranch, Elbert, Colorado|
On the opposite end of earthy vs technology scale is the Lace Sensor Project by e-textilists Anja Hertenberger and Meg Grant. They're collaborating with the Museum de Kantfabriek (Lace Factory Museum) in Limburg, Netherlands, creating conductive lace. There is no denying my techno-roots: This founding member of Silicon Soul loves their project. The following video is a very short demo.
The possibilities are endless. I will be following the project's progression.
