What is a print media ad?

Print media ads were once the standard format for creative advertising.

Development of a process for technical textile recycling of blended fabric

A new approach of technical textile recycling is developed at ITA within the project ‘Development of a Process for Recycling of Blended Fabrics’ (PolyCotton) to address challenges in environmental protection. Each year 14-16 mio tons of PET/cotton blended fabrics are generated as wastes by the fast moving fashion industry. PET is made of fossil resources and for each kilogramme of cotton, around 10,000 litres of water is needed.

The project aims to generate staple fibre yarns of fully recycled PET staple fibres. The materials used are fabrics of blended cotton and PET staple fibre yarns. First, the cotton is removed and subsequently the PET staple fibres are opened by carding. Larger fabric/yarn remains are removed from the opened fibre material. Then recycled PET fibres are blended with virgin cotton fibres in a 50/50 ratio to identify appropriate parameters for rotor spinning. Thereafter, the PET amount is increased up to 100%.

Laboratory tests are carried out (tensile, hairiness, evenness). The new PET yarn is dyed and further processed into a knitted demonstrator (see figure). The demonstrator is evaluated with a fabric of virgin PET staple fibre yarns. The possible end applications include apparel, work wear or home technical textiles.

Print Media – Visual Arts

The Print Media Emphasis engages new forms of artistic expression through interdisciplinary explorations by mark-making and gesture with bodily, mechanical and technological tools.

A strong foundation in art history and theory is supplemented by discussions of historical, conceptual, and critical approaches to print media, providing a framework for investigation into the technical and material aspects of print-based practices. Manual, photographic, and digital print processes are explored, with an emphasis on the fluid manipulation of materials.

The Print Media Emphasis allows for a variety of approaches to print practice, incorporating two-and three-dimensional multiples, book arts, installation, performance, documentation, and other hybrid expressions.
