|Title:||CraftTech||Authors:||Tan, J||Issue Date:||Sep-2019||Abstract:||CraftTech investigates hybrid design frameworks and the integration of craft and technology for interactive material design. The research methods and visual outcomes are original. While, the bridging of design and technology had brought about innovations, most existing research indicate a skewed emphasis on technological functionality and the finished product. Previous research on POFs had focused primarily on functional illumination and the finished product while Tan’s research focuses on the development process. The research involved international practitioners from different disciplines. The research highlights the reflective and evolutionary nature of design practice and how it contributes to the creation of smart materials. The impact of the research are,
•Enable an understanding of how hybrid frameworks contribute to the design of smart materials and products.
•Establishing reference points within design discourse and reflecting on how practice contributes to design research.
The research indicates the wide range of insights and expertise from different disciplines contributes to the development of innovative designs. The process requires a balance of concepts, methods and techniques from different perspectives. Flexibility allows the practitioners to refine the designs by incorporating new findings from their practice. The research of the fundamental hybrid design frameworks will contribute to the sustainable development of innovative smart materials. This body of work had been exhibited at Victoria and Albert Museum (May 2018) as part of the Digital Drop-In event, at a peer-reviewed exhibition (By Annie Warburton, Creative Director of the Crafts Council) at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Science (March 2018). She publicly lectured on this research via at Parsons School of Design, USA (July, 2018); design residency at Shih Chien University (December 2017). The research had been disseminated via 1 journal publications, 2 conference proceedings, 3 exhibitions; 1 exhibition book and successful competitive bidding of 1 PhD student for project sustainability.
