This portrait is based on an interview with Vibeke Riisberg, the first textile designer in Denmark to earn a Ph.D., in 2006. In 2007 Riisberg was appointed Associate Professor at Kolding School of Design. The text unfolds some of the various activities in her career from her education at the Art and Craft School in Copenhagen in the 1970s, through her collaboration with industry from a design studio in Paris, to exhibitions of textile art, design and teaching. Parts of the Ph.D. thesis ‘Printed textiles – from analogue to digital processes’ are presented, along with the research project ‘Adjusting daylight and solar heating in office buildings’, which she conducted in collaboration with textile engineer and Associate Professor Joy Boutrup.
