Week 1 Assignment – Eliza


The water-soluble textiles and environmentally responsive fabrics are particularly exciting to me. As part of my thesis research, I’m looking into the realms of sustainability, feminism, and designing for the apocalypse.

I ended up choosing these two (I know I cheated), because they fall into the field of “low tech,” so while they aren’t embedded with LEDs or connected to a smartphone, for examples, they do demonstrate technical thinking and design, and, most importantly to me, are made with the textile’s life cycle in mind.
