Introducing Tessa Marie Acti.

Tess is a research assistant and artist whose practice is focused on mass production digital embroidery technology as an artistic, innovative tool. Following extensive experimentation and analysis she has developed a working methodology which questions the pioneering value of what is essentially a commercial production machine. Exploring digital embroidery and its innovative potential throughout her BA-Textile Design and MA-Textile Design and Innovation at Nottingham Trent University, Tessa has established a wealth of knowledge regarding embroidery techniques, yarn, and fabrics and how they interact with embroidery production machines, resulting in subversive and explorative results. This exploration has led to her current research under the leadership of Professor Tilak Dias, in a three-year collaborative programme of research with the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Loughborough University funded by the IeMRC/ESPRC. This entails the development of a new generation of flexible fabric antenna systems that can overcome issues currently encountered by the military, search and rescue teams and the emergency services
