Distributed creativity: collaborative digital textile design practice
MetadataShow full item record
This paper continues my investigations into the creative possibilities of digital technologies within contemporary textiles practice. It presents an analysis of findings from a collaborative investigation with a New York based textile designer. The paper examines the use of distributed digital working practice using the internet for file transfer and digital ink-jet printing technology as a method of outputting collaborative design work. The findings are informed by analysis of case study data and collaborative practical investigations. This output presents my research within the context of the design industry and proposes new manufacturing paradigms in which digital working processes and print technology make possible new ways of creating and manufacturing printed textiles. The paper was internationally peer reviewed for selection in the conference and accepted without revision or amendment. Its inclusion in a design management conference made its findings available to inform the design industry, and eventually led to an AHRC funded collaborative project with the London College of Fashion investigating creative practice and the use of digital imaging technology.
