films

This film by Jim Boxall introduces the project and its relationship with Arcintex, an international research network in architecture, interaction design and e-textiles. We hosted a workshop and symposium at Trent in Feb 2015:

 

This is 3 films in 1, and comprises interviews with participants after the 6-week e-textile workshops in phase 1 of the project. It is concerned with their experiences in making smart textiles for the first time. These were made using a person-centred methodology by Isabel Jones and Geoffrey Fielding, and are very powerful from a methodological point of view.

For a discussion on the film-making process, please see our ITAG paper:

mental health awareness training

Haley Berry of the Nottinghamshire Mind Network has delivered this excellent awareness training to the team twice now – once at the start of the project, and once for the invited textile artists in phase 2. Equally powerful each time.
