Barbro Scholz : Textile Design
I am an artist and textile designer. I have my background in industrial design and textile design with a focus on electronic textiles and interaction. My interest is the impact of designed objects on society, especially textiles as user-interfaces for technical devices or as the device itself. I think the change of possibilities in material choices and size for devices raise new questions to designers. I believe that our life and behavior change and that the designer’s visionary role becomes even more important as well as the responsibility of designers to ask critical questions. Using the space where arts and design meets gives a chance to allow discussions beside consumer objects.
