Sheila Hicks: Apprentissages
15,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An American artist born in 1934 and based in Paris since 1964, Sheila Hicks has dedicated her life to the textiles and fibers she handles, sculpts, and glorifies in works both big and small. Her unique style gives shape to an international language, understandable by each of us, which is simultaneously tactile, emotional, and straightforward. Thanks to her profound mastery of technical craftsmanship and her rare aesthetic intuition, her artistic practice finds its equilibrium at the intersection of applied arts and contemporary art, proposing an idiosyncratic chromatic and formal vocabulary.This handbook accompanies her project for the 2016 Festival d'Automne in Paris. Entitled "Apprentissages" ("learning processes"), it develops as a manifold exhibition held successively in the classical architecture of the Musée Carnavalet, dedicated to the history of Paris, in several shop windows in different Parisian neighborhoods, and finally in the post-modernist black cube of the Théâtre des Amandiers-Nanterre. Gathering together a record of the site-specific installations, rare archive photographs, and documents, the book is built around an extensive conversation between Sheila Hicks and Clément Dirié about her life and work, her relationship with Paris, her methods of learning and sharing.Sheila Hicks' recent exhibitions include the 30th São Paulo Biennial (2012), the Whitney Biennial in New York (2014), the 20th Sydney Biennial, the Glasgow International Festival, and "Weaving_& We-2nd Triennial of Fiber Art" in Hangzhou (all 2016).Published with the Festival d'Automne à Paris.

3D shaped fabrics are widely used for producing technical applications including textile composites, medical textiles, and protective textiles. Textile engineers and material scientists have developed 3D textile preforms for composites, which are becoming more popular in many areas due to their light weight, dimensional stability, and high strength properties. Architecture of a textile preform can vary from a simple planar sheet to complex 3D shell shapes. This book aims to exploit the potentials of conventional looms for producing dome-shaped fabrics for technical applications, such as protective helmet, aircraft seat, motorcycle seat, and bullet-proof vest for women. Second objective of this research is to develop methods for evaluating the dome effect of fabrics. A dome tester has been developed in the research with the capability of measuring the dome formability and also the fabric mouldability. The results of both evaluation methods for the dome formability revealed that loose fabric structures lead to better dome formability for all fabric types. The results also showed that increasing the number of layers for the multi-layer fabrics has produced less obvious dome effects.

Textile architecture has been captivating humanity for many centuries. In recent years and decades, the emergence of innovative materials has created new opportunities to utilize this fascinating material in the fields of architecture, interior design, and design. Textiles derive their fascination from the special forms these fabric structures make possible and from their unusual character as soft materials. Together with their functional and structural properties, they possess a range of capabilities equally suitable for spectacular and everyday building tasks. This book deals with technical textiles in three sections: in the fi rst chapter, the material is introduced together with its specific properties; the second chapter deals with its uses in the areas of architecture, textile facades, solar protection, and interior design, with special attention to finishing techniques and construction principles. The third chapter illustrates the various fields of application with a selection of some twenty-four international built projects.

Ambient Intelligence
233,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ambient intelligence is the vision of a technology that will become invisibly embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever we need it, enabled by simple and effortless interactions, attuned to all our senses, adaptive to users and context-sensitive, and autonomous. High-quality information access and personalized content must be available to everybody, anywhere, and at any time. This book addresses ambient intelligence used to support human contacts and accompany an individual's path through the complicated modern world. From the technical standpoint, distributed electronic intelligence is addressed as hardware vanishing into the background. Devices used for ambient intelligence are small, low-power, low weight, and (very importantly) low-cost; they collaborate or interact with each other; and they are redundant and error-tolerant. This means that the failure of one device will not cause failure of the whole system. Since wired connections often do not exist, radio methods will play an important role for data transfer. This book addresses various aspects of ambient intelligence, from applications that are imminent since they use essentially existing technologies, to ambitious ideas whose realization is still far away, due to major unsolved technical challenges. TOC:Introduction.- I. Applications: Social, Economic, and Ethical Implications of Ambient Intelligence and Ubiquitous Computing.- Integrated Microelectronics for Smart Textiles.- Ambient Intelligence Research in HomeLab.- How Ambient Intelligence will Improve Habitability and Energy Efficiency in Buildings.- II. System Design and Architecture: Networked Infomechanical Systems.- TinyOS: An Operating System for Sensor Networks.- A Service Based Universal Application Interface for ad hoc Wireless Sensor Networks.- Locationing and Time Synchronization Services in Ambient Intelligence Networks.- Security for Ambient Intelligence Systems.- Low-Cost Wireless Control Networks in Smart Environments.- III. Components and Technologies: Ambient Intelligence Technologies: An Overview.- Ultra-Low Power Integrated Wireless Nodes for Ambient Intelligence Networks.- Packaging Challenges in Miniaturization.- Algorithms in Ambient Intelligence.
