Hybrid Fabrication

The research proposes an interactive fabrication framework for designers to engage with traditional craft – embroidery. The system includes a CNC embroidery machine, computer vision framework, and algorithms that could generate machine output in different degrees of predictability. The goal of this framework is to explore new ways for designers to engage with materials and mediates social interaction thorough interactive fabrication. Further, I would like to provide a medium for people to revisit this feminine crafts and trigger critical thinking on the impacts that computation bring to the textile fabrication
