Stitching Worlds

What if electronics emerged from knitting, weaving, crochet, and embroidery? ‘Stitching Worlds’ blends the territories of textiles and electronics by investigating textile techniques as controversial means for manufacturing electronic objects. Bringing together the results of a four-year arts-based research project, the book challenges our assumptions and expectations about technology by revealing unexpected potentials of often-undervalued knowledge and skills. With contributions by, among others, Onur Akmehmet, Ekmel Ertan, So Kanno, Irene Posch, Mika Satomi, and Rebecca Stewart.
