Special Issue of Journal of Textile Design Research and Practice
Editors: Anne Toomey, Elaine Igoe, Amy Winters, Elif Ozden Yenigun
This special issue probes the practice of textiles and material-led researchers from both methodological and applied definitions of SOFT SYSTEMS. Designers are working with hermeneutic approaches synonymous with the fields of both traditional and innovative textiles and fashion to expose anomalies in perceived circumstances and create affective encounters to explore them. They work from the speculative and applied, for the now and far future. Explorations and integrations of technological, scientific, design and craft processes within textile and material-led systems avoid ontological permanence moving away from preconceived understandings of textiles, fabric or cloth to examples of radical ‘textilic’ practice. We invite contributions from practitioners and scholars who explore complex systems by privileging and asserting materials and making in their creative and critical methodologies and practices.
