Shih Wei Chieh

I am a media artist works with e-textile, wearables and laser installations.

Current Exhibition

如果時間是穿戴且摺疊的 - If Time Was Wearable And Foldable 天然纖維與雷射染跨域合作展

Recent Projects

laser dye

One of my main focus now is the laser dye project, which is an exploration of laser exposured alternative photography on nature fibres. I develop large cyanotype prints on fabric canvas.

e-textile, wearables

My other main focus is conductive material application in textiles, I explore the application of conductive fabric for making wearables, sensors, e-textiles

laser installation

I have been making laser installation with DIY laser machine and max/msp since 2011. Now I am trying to make a standalone laser projector by Axoloti.

Early stage projects
installation, sound devices.

Tribe Against Machine

Inspired by joining the e-Textile Summer Camp in Paillard, France, I started an annual 10-days international workshop program with some friends called Tribe Against Machine in Taiwan, brings art, technologies to meet the Taiwanese aboriginal textiles communities. Wa are now designing a nomadic residency program where artist, scientist and social engaged project can meet together.

Current Researches

Embroidered Circuits Wearables

10 Tracks, 10 jackets, 1 album


I am currently collaborating with a Tibetan community in Qinghai, China, to develop a greenhouse can resist low temperature in high altitude in order to provide year run vegetable for an orphanage.

Machine learning

The Self-portrait Of Things is an experiment about how machine learning can participate with painters. 

DSSC wearable

I have been researching for this interesting photosensitive material since 2018, trying to apply conventional DSSC as sensors for motion classifier,  light sensor for music device. 


Laser dye and max/msp workshop

I give workshops of laser cyanotype and DIY laser projectors, designing laser sonic motion in max/msp environment, basic knowlege for DSP process.
