Collaborative Designing and Making
Jeanette Landgrebe and Maurice Nevile
This project involves collaboration with local clothing designers and makers. It examines video data of interactions for custom clothing design and making, including meetings and fitting sessions involving designers, makers, and users. It is an environment rich with objects, as both tools and outcomes of collaboration, including fabric, pins, and scissors. One focus considers how participants use objects to organize and progress their joint activities, as they propose and agree on possible alterations to a dance dress.
