The Interactive Sample Book (ISB) project was started, as a practice based research project, with the aim of exploring and communicating some of the possibilities within interactive textiles. The applications for interactive textiles range from medical applications to architecture, and from the fashion industry to costume design. In relation to the sample book, focus will be on texture, lightning and senses in relation to integrated decoration and function primarily to indoors applications.
The result of the project is a number of interactive textiles, to be gathered in an interactive sample book, in a similar way as the sample books of wallpapers one can take home from the shop and choose from. In other words, it is a kind of display material, which in a simple manner can illustrate how different techniques and smart materials work.
