Cultural Tech-Fusion Fabrics

 
 
Tomorrow (6:30-8:30 pm) I will be conducting an image collection event at the Cupertino Community Center. This event is sponsored by the Cupertino Library as part of their Asian Heritage Month programming. People who bring a cultural garment or fabric for me to photograph will be entered to win a pair of Zazzle shoes. I will have a mannequin set up with images of my preliminary textile designs flashing across it. This visual is to aid the public in understanding the project (and hopefully will draw in people just passing by.) It won't be dark yet and I will be set up in doors, so I don't know how visible this will be.

It will be a test run for a similar mannequin set up at the SubZero Festival on June 4th at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. At that event I will create a digital textile lab for one evening. The public will have the opportunity to experiment with textile design on  laptops generously loaned by the Krause Center For Innovation. Visitors can create textile tiling patterns on paper, post them on an inspiration board and will also be able to vote on the public submissions for the fusionwear sv textile contest. The printing of the winning textiles will be sponsored by Spoonflower.
