  • Materials science is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering. This scientific field investigates the relationship between the structure of materials at atomic or molecular scales and their macroscopic properties. It incorporates elements of applied physics and chemistry. With significant media attention focused on nanoscience and nanotechnology in recent years, materials science has been propelled to the forefront at many universities. It is also an important part of forensic engineering and failure analysis. Materials science also deals with fundamental properties and characteristics of materials. FlexUPD introduces a layer of de-bonding material between a polyimide layer and glass carrier to an existing TFT glass process. The thin film transistor array that is used now for panel displays is made on this soft PI film which can be smoothly cut away without damaging the transistors. It is just like a layer of non-stick material between a pancake and pan. Similarly, it not only enables smoothly separating the pancake from the pan, but it also won't damage the surface of the pancake. This technology will assist panel display manufacturers take advantage of their existing superiority in glass processes to cross over into flexible display production and provide new opportunities to produce high value flexible displays with small-to-medium sized processes that are facing obsolescence, not to mention providing a timely solution for the problem of high expense of building manufacturing plant by the flat panel industry.

  • Dr. Manel Torres, a former student of the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London, is slowly getting us there. He’s created Fabrican, a technology that literally sprays fabric onto the body. Coming from a fashion background, Torres’ initial idea was to create clothes for the catwalk, but 10 years of toil and development have led him to realize the potential for many other uses beyond a new dress for Lady Gaga: spray-on bandages that are ready-sterilized, spray-on cleaning cloths or spray-on upholstery for cars and homes are just a few other applications, the latter two he’s discussing with commercial partners. Torres, born and raised in Catalonia, Spain has been funding and working full time on this project since he came up with the idea 1997, after watching people spray silly string at a wedding. To pay for it all, including the one employee who works for him, Torres teaches one or two days a week at a London fashion school, and in the meantime has become more than a dilettante in chemistry. Torres created the formula for the spray with the help of Paul Luckham, a professor of particle technology at Imperial, offering him a 20% stake in Fabrican Ltd (established in 2003) in return for working with him on the project one day a week. Torres owns the other 80%. Luckham and Torres milled down old fabrics and mixed the fibers with a polymer, then added a solvent that would evaporate before the formula hit a surface and turned solid on contact. The technology has gradually improved and become relatively cheap to create. Five years ago the “fabric” would fall apart in your hands when sprayed; today it has the feel of suede and can be taken off and even worn once more.
  • london-based suzanne lee, is a senior research fellow in the school of fashion / textiles, central saint martins, london. she is also the creative director of biocouture which investigates the growth of clothing through the use of bacterial cellulose. lee's latest garment - which uses these growing textiles - is the 'biocouture' jacket made from cellulose. instead of coming from plants, the cellulose is produced by millions of tiny bacteria grown in bathtubs of sweet green tea. ee will host a workshop, thursday, september 23rd at the 100% materials stand at 100% design during london design week. her pioneering project which demonstrates growth of a biomaterial using nothing other tan sugary tea and bacteria, will also be presented at this time. the 'eco-textile' is grown in flat sheets which are then cut to shape, sewn together or moulded over 3D forms.
  • The Fiber Optic Stilettos, to some degree, have pointed out the importance of science and technology. I mean, the improvement of science not only changes our daily life, but also influences the woman fashion. The sexy stilettos are from Francesca Castagnacci, who uses light-reflecting optical fibers and LEDs as main materials, and therefore making the stunning piece shine like a bright star in the dark nights.

  • Rachel Whiteread, CBE (born 20 April 1963) is a British artist, best known for her sculptures, which typically take the form of casts, and first woman to win the Turner Prize. Whiteread is one of the so-called Young British Artists, and exhibited at the Royal Academy’s Sensation exhibition in 1997. She is probably best known for Ghost, a large plaster cast of the inside of a room in a Victorian house, and for her resin sculpture for the empty plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square. Ghost (1990) by Rachel Whiteread
  • For the Turbine Hall, she has created a gigantic labyrinth-like structure, entitled EMBANKMENT, made from 14,000 casts of the inside of different boxes, stacked to occupy this monumental space. The form of a cardboard box has been chosen because of its associations with the storage of intimate personal items and to invoke the sense of mystery surrounding ideas of what a sealed box might contain.
  • Greyman Cries, Shaman Dies, Billowing Smoke, Beauty Evoked, 2008-09. Cement, dimensions variable. Collection of the artist. Installed at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2009.
  • Artist D.A. Therrien has been creating dramatic, high-voltage art spectacle performances in Europe, Asia and North America since 1983. His work utilizes machines, computers, information displays, high intensity light, robotics and live electricity in complex interactions with human performers/operators. These performances address humanity's relationship to political and religious systems, medical technology, surveillance, information systems and other 20th and 21st century technologies that are now pervasive in everyday life. Installations in the BEAUTIFUL LIGHT series are derived from ideas that I have been fascinated with since childhood, most specifically, the phenomema of light and electricity and the role of light in our belief systems, language, biology, natural world and cosmology - light as illumination, energy, information - and as a metaphor for good and evil. It is also one of our earliest technologies - fire to drive out the night. Therrien's work is a collision at the intersection of the human body, language and technology. It is massive in scale and involves robotics, giant information displays, video, medical technology, surveillance and electrified human bodies as the controlling interface. Work with information arrays lead to coding systems devised for the 4 LETTER WORD MACHINE, a piece initially imagined as an installation on cliff walls in Monument Valley, Arizona, inspired by language spoken as coded systems of communication, and in particular, the Navajo Code talkers of WWII.
  • Interior view - Carbon Obscura I - May 2007- Lloyd Godman - Installation in the greenhouse at Montsalvat as part of Structure Place and Space - Installations in Nillumbik - Nillumbik the green wedge shire Insulation paper, recycled carbon paper, fog, light ‘ Carbon Obscura’ is an immersive light experience which envelops participants, creating a magical environment of dancing patterns of sunlight that people rarely have the opportunity to enjoy. The installation, created by the celebrated artist Lloyd Godman, is based on a camera obscura, and is a physical representation in light of a combination of a cooling tower and a coal mine into which people can enter. Gallery team leader, Bryony Nainby, said the piece has been created by a skeleton of pipework covered in black plastic with a myriad of tiny holes pushed through it in a stunning design. “ Viewed from the inside, the piece creates a dramatic effect as the light penetrates and is captured by smoke that is generated inside the work,” Ms Nainby explained. The work has been commissioned as part of ‘The Grid – Epicentre’, a Green Expectations project that aims to raise awareness and discussion about climate change.
