1. State of the art, project management and documentation#

This week I worked on defining my final project idea and started to getting used to the documentation process.

Me and GitLab#

After initial difficulties in creating links and uploading images, I got into GitLab and I am now busy trying to document my weekly work at the Fabricademy.

Ideas and Comments#

To further define my initial ideas for the final project, I researched the World Wide Web. First, I looked at existing projects that interest me in terms of content. I would like to deal with textiles that have a certain additional function and are therefore either helpful, practical or just fancy.

Here you can see some examples:
