施惟捷從事可穿戴藝術、電子紡織品、DIY雷射工程等領域的工作,他也是一位自學的材料科學研究者,他的雷射染計劃是關於如何透過雷射光學、程式藝術和新氰版顯影在服裝和天然纖維織品上製造顯影圖案,這啟發了他對材料科學、傳統工藝與新媒體藝術之間的合作關系研究。 他是部落對抗機器(Tribe Against Machine)的創辦人,該計劃旨在促進新媒體藝術和古老傳統工藝的合作,並在之間建立友善相互助益的關系,彼此啟發。他的另一項研究探索如何使用DIY的方式去製作用天然染料製成的染料敏化太陽能電池,探奈米科技在視覺藝術中的表現和應用。



Shih Wei Chieh works with wearable art, e-textile, laser audiovisual. He is also a self-taught material science researcher. His "Laser Dye Project" initiated since 2015, combines code art and alternative photography, to innovate an optical textile printing method by programmable laser projector and New Cyanotype solution, which inspire him to explore material science, chemistry application in visual art by the trans-disciplinary collaboration between new medias and traditional craft techniques. He’s the founder of “Tribe Against Machine'', an international camp in Taiwan to trigger the collaboration between aboriginal craft culture and e-textile. His current research is how to manufacture dye sensitized solar cells made of natural dyes at home, to explore the artistic application in nanotechnology.
