施惟捷多使用電子零件、聲音、雷射聲響表演、電子織品為作品媒材,自2011起開始專注在智慧織品應用如導電縫線和織物表現的結合,近年來開始關注工藝和適切科技、材料藝術的社群合作。他喜歡將新媒體和傳統工藝技法結合,在不同的歷史維度上討論何謂是「新」與「傳統」。如他的數位製造計劃雷射染/Laser Dye結合雷射投影和傳統氰版顯影製程,運用在視覺藝術上和成衣3D數位印花上的合作。

他亦是部落對抗機器Tribe Against Machine創辦者,該計劃平台是一個連結藝術、黑客文化、材料科學和古老文化的嘗試,在古老作法中尋找材料設計的靈感。


Shih Wei Chieh works with wearable art, e-textile, laser audiovisual, he started his work base on e-textile since 2011. For the past few years he started to focus on how the discipline “art” could be expanded under the intersecion of “craft”, “appropreate technology” and “new medias”. His “Laser Dye” project in 2015 generate cyanotype image exposed by laser source explore the reuse of old craft in media archeology sense, as well as to grow the connection between different communities by creating crafts commons.
