This week, the final episode in the Luminous Green series, you’ll hear me walking and talking in the Belgian countryside with Carole Collett, Course Director of the MA in Textile Futures at Central Saint Martins. Carole is a textiles pioneer who inspires future generations of designers by mapping out ways to redefine our intimate and emotional relationships within “smart homes” using intelligent textiles and sustainable design. As a designer and consultant, she specializes in textile print, R&D, sustainable and smart textiles. Most recently, Carole has teamed up with Sir John Sulston, who was awarded the 2002 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, for his work in unraveling the genetic code of the C. elegans worm. This is one of several textile designer/scientist pairings for the Nobel Textiles project that Carole co-developed with Professor Amanda Fishers (MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, London).
