This was an exciting week for the Bay dataFabrics project. I've further focused my concepts and fabric themes. My current summary and public presentation is here. I had a productive meeting with CCA fashion/textiles graduate student Timothy Ho. We discussed a possible collaboration if I can stick to my fabric production timeline. I also had a lovely meeting with Allison Arieff of the amazing organization SPUR.
