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,他還是一位自學的材料研究員。 他在2015年的“雷射染”計劃是關於如何結合雷射光學和傳統的氰版顯影來製造紡織圖案,這激發了他對材料科學、古代工藝與新媒體藝術的合作,以及尋找其背後的社會性意義的興趣。 他是“部落對抗機器”(Tribe Against Machine)的創辦人,該項目旨在促進新媒體藝術和古老的文化合作,並在之間建立友善戶相助益的關系,並能彼此啟發。他的另一項主要關注在於如何使用DIY方式製作用植物染料製成的光伏紡織品和光伏電池,這也是關於奈米材料如和參與社區型的藝術計劃。 這項研究將會隨著一項在西藏建造的溫室一起進行,探索建築與植物共生和結合了植物染料太陽能的溫室設計。



Shih Wei Chieh works with wearable art, e-textile, laser audiovisual, a self-taught material science researcher. His "Laser Dye Project" initiated since 2015, combines code art and alternative photography, to innovate a optical textile printing method by a programable laser and New Cyanotype solution, which inspire him to explore material science, chemistry application in visual art by the trans-disciplinary collaboration between new and old medias. He’s the founder of “Tribe Against Machine”, a project encourage new media art to collaborate with ancient cultures, to innovate a trans-disciplinary research system, and therefore to build up a benificial relationship inbetween that can inspire each others. Another of his current research is to make photosensitive textile and phtovotaic battery made with plants dye in DIY method, a material science research to include nano material in social design project. This research will go alone with a earthship greenhouse system in Tibet, which can be solar powered by plants dye.
