Story

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Thanks for the contributions of information and photographs I have already received ♡

As you know, this is a project to create an interactive infographic detailing our family tree going back 8 generations. It includes digitally printed photographs on fabric of people mentioned in the tree, and I would like to work on an electronic textile system which would link buttons on photos to the names on the tree using sew-on LEDs.

It already has 3 years of research and preparation gone into it, and it would be great to see the project through to its best possible conclusion.

Below are the various stages of the project. The goal figure of £1500 would fund the project to stage 8. And additional funds raised above that will go towards stages 9 and 10.

Project stages/ objectives:
1. Research the family tree and create and artefact to be added to by future generations
2.Print family photos on fabric using screen print and digital print.
3.Assembling a central panel with digitally printed nameplates appliqued and connected
4.Frame photos with fabric linking it to a generation on the central panel.
5.Assemble Patchwork of photos , crochet prints and fabric samples around central panel.
6.E-textile system. fabric push-to-make switches on photos, link to an LED next to name on central panel. This is likely to be the biggest expense in terms of cost and time needed.
7.Backing and finishing. Depending on contributions (both information and £s!) this side could be digitally printed with profiles of family members eg date of birth, ocupation etc). these could be made as pockets so other information could be added.
8. Recruiting and apprenticing younger family members to carry on the work.
9.Promoting and exhibiting the work to galleries in the UK and Europe. Supporting the completion of a similar project documenting a 6 month trip through Asia.
10. Promoting services for similar projects to commission.
