On The Fringe

14 - 21 September 2007

On the Fringe is the name given to one of the supporting events surrounding the conference and will showcase a Design and Technology research initiative culminating in the exhibition and a conference contribution exploring the use of digital manufacture for Interior Textiles.

On the Fringe will present the outcomes of the collaborative research project undertaken by Tracy Hunt, Janette Harris, Pat Moloney, Kaye Newman, Gina Pierce and Paula Ashbrooke, who are concerned with the meeting of traditional craft methodologies and globally vital digital technologies. A key working practice for On the Fringe is collaborative research - between members and technologies. The work-in-progress will also be represented, as working practices are as much outcomes as resolved design works. Formal presentations will be organised as a seminar introducing the digital//craft workshops on 15 September 2007, to enable a discursive dialogue between European Textiles Networkers and On the Fringe.
