Craft + Technology at the Watershed, Bristol.

Yesterday I went to the showcase event marking the end of these 3 month residencies which saw makers working with technologists to explore ideas which combine craft, culture and technology.  They came up with three very different projects that incorporate human/digital interaction in unexpected ways - a flying skirt, a memory box for people with dementia and a hug and pay system. It was fascinating and intriguing, both the ideas and hearing about how the collaboration worked.  You can read about the project at and  they will be uploading a film from this event soon.

What an unusual approach - it sounds fascinating. Thankyou for the link to that website. I just haven't had the time or energy to visit any exhibitions recently.
