Hello, if you are interested in computation and textiles, there are three events in the Boston area the early part of November that you will want to attend.
The IFAI is in town, or the Industrial Fabrics Association International from Nov. 6-9th at the Boston Convention Center. There are many interesting programs concerning building and textiles.
On Friday 9 November, 9:30am- 12:30pm I have organized a seminar at the IFAI fair titled From Building to Body: Current Research Into Interactive and Technical Textiles. A Panel of 5 speakers from MIT, OCAD U Toronto and the GSD at Harvard will present and discuss their works ranging from the architecture to affective wearables.

Monday, 5 November – 14 November Exhibition titled Patterning by Heat: Responsive Textile Structures. Keller Gallery, MIT School of Architecture and Planning, Building 7-408. Heat activated knitted textiles will be presented by myself and collaborator Delia Dumitrescu, PhD Candidate at the Swedish School for Textiles in Boras, and Chalmers IT. The gallery is open M-F 9am-6pm, and by appointment. Here is a link: http://architecture.mit.edu/computation/news/patterning-heat-responsive-textile-structures
Saturday 10 November there will be a hands on workshop, High Low Tech Lab, 5th Floor MIT Media Lab. 1pm-4pm titled Textile Sketches: Heat Fused Textile Demonstration. Delia Dumitrescu and I will show participants how the fabrics in the exhibition work and many additional samples. Participants will make their own patterns.
All are welcome to attend any of these public events. See you there!
