textiles, e-textiles, pattern, structure and movement, including dance.
Interfaces between materials, craft technologies, digital engineering,
responsive systems, embodied communications, threads, inter-weaving,
intertwining, braiding and building will provide a rich vein of dialogue,
experimentation and recent practice-led outcomes.
