As part of my practice-led PhD that explores the use of generative systems and physical interfaces for digitally printed textiles, this video shows the prototype retail installation I developed for Natasha Marshall, a Glasgow-based textile design studio. The project was supported by New Media Scotland (via the Alt-w awards scheme) and the Scottish Funding Council with the aim of building a co-design experience that invites customers to create their own products by engaging with interactive print designs.

NB: This video features the song "Intro" by The XX so be sure to turn your volume up.

In order to allow real-time interaction whilst allowing high-resolution output for print, the HYPE Framework (by Branden Hall and Joshua Davis) was adapted to enable vector data to be captured at runtime and exported in FXG format. The resulting file can simply be opened in Illustrator, saved as a TIF and printed onto fabric.
