Soft Technology

Soft Technology is a research project on electronic textiles. The project focuses on materials and techniques, and aims at collecting resources and building an active network outside and across institutions.

With one leg planted in the DIY-tradition of electronic art, Soft Technology conveys knowledge about and understanding of technology in addition to traditional and modern textile techniques.

Through a series of work-labs, open workshops, seminars and exhibitions, the possibilities and challenges in the intersection between theoretical knowledge, new technology, and artistic practice are explored.

Soft Technology is a project initiated by Hillevi Munthe and produced by Atelier Nord in collaboration with Hilde Hauan Johnsen at Future Textiles at Bergen National Academy of the Arts.
