I am a multi-disciplinary textile designer who looks to challenge the traditional, pushing my work to go beyond the realm of the ‘expected’ textiles. Witnessing the move away from natural, imagined children’s play in this new world of omnipresent technology, my project explores play in conjunction with Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic learning systems (V.A.K). My Project showcases a collection of materials made using textile and industrial processes in response to V.A.K learning systems, that entice children to explore, play and enjoy. My aim is to change the way children interact in the material world, through stimulating their senses with engaging material interactions. With a goal to teach future generations that we learn to interact with the material world through the simple act of play, I propose technology’s main value is a tool for the betterment of our world, rather than initiating a secondary, imagined one.
