Addressing Integrating and Connecting Digital Technologies: Work submitted will be a collection of 3 hand stitched textile products with an accompanying short documentary style film.The film supports the products by demonstrating the design process in the which the textiles were made.The textile pieces are described as modern day family heirlooms. Both pieces of work i.e. the film and heirloom pieces are in response to the above category. The hand crafted heirlooms have been designed and crafted by Shirley Mclauchlan (Edinburgh University School of Design Textile dept.) her design work focuses on her role as a practicing sustainable designer. The process will be filmed by Maddie Clark final year (BA Hons) Broadcasting student from University West of Scotland. The collaboration will record hand skills that may be in danger of being lost as the impact of digital technologies speed up the making process. The film will document the process and further examine the relationship between the designer and the client. The design work will demonstrate how skill and material choice can help to maximise the longevity of a product. Exploring the notion of modern day family heirlooms/ The collaboration will be a celebration of digital technologies and craft focussing on the benefits one can have on each other instead of opposing each other.
