In the textile art field, artists are producing wearable art, gallery installations, and public art by collaborating scientists and engineers. Some work explores visual communication or conceptual approaches involving the intersections between art and technology. LED light ornaments, thermochromic ink, and conductive threads can be materials; images from social media, scanned portraits, microscopic viruses, and data from laboratory experiments can be motifs. Laser cutting, 3D printing, heat press machines, computer looms, and digital sewing machines can be tools. Maker spaces can be artists’ workshops and studios, where people get opportunities to use new tools and facilities as well as meet and collaborate with creative people.
