Artists and designers reveal how art, science and nature are intertwined when it comes to the creation and utilization of textile structures. Participants include Kenneth Snelson, the inventor of 'tensegrity', the structural system made famous by Buckminster Fuller, Ann Richards whose textile practice focuses on biomechanics, and Sophie Roët who combines technology with the hand weaving process to develop new and hybrid textiles.
