Flaky fabrics


There’s a great-sounding exhibit coming up at Drexel about future-world fabrics. It’s hands on. Visitors will be allowed to touch, squeeze, pull, twist and squish innovative textile samples, like

clothing made from touch-sensitive textiles that can control a wearer’s iPod! athletic wear that emits light in the dark!
and concrete that becomes translucent through the inclusion of light-transmitting glass textiles!

The exhibit will be at Drexel’s Paul Peck Alumni Center, 3189 Market St., from April 10-18. The opening is April 10 at 6.

The exhibit is the sidebar for a lecture series, Textiles: The Next Horizon, April 10, 11, 12, 17 & 18.
