Personal profile

Research interests

Heidi Pietarinen is a professor in the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Lapland, Finland. She holds a PhD degree in textile design and her research has emphasis on knowledge and methods of textile art, bioart and art-based research. Her research includes projects and working groups such as the Future Bio Arctic Design, High Altitude Bioprospecting and BioARTech Laboratory, which include biochemists and artists. Pietarinen is curious about the narratives and multiple cultural influences told by textiles. Different cultures can teach us how to recognize and appreciate the contrasts of materials, colours and textures within the simplest forms. Narratives should not be thought of as mere written history, but as what we do as doing is thinking.
