Digital fabrication tools and sensors make it possible to create simple and inexpensive technological clothing able to measure and warn of different variables that the human body cannot perceive.The aim of this workshop is to show what can be done with open code tools and the possibilities offered by the incorporation of sensors into clothing, for the creation of technological garments from an artistic perspective.
Over two sessions, the participants will make their own technological clothes, incorporating into an everyday garment sensors that measure the amount of light and humidity. The data gathered can be visualized on a small LCD screen that is also incorporated.
Aimed for: creators, designers and anyone interested in wearable technology with open code tools. No previous knowledge is necessary

Our work as art group brings together a collection of works and projects in which we study the interrelations and intersections that occur between machines and the human being.
We approach these issues in different kind of pieces: Interactive installations, sound interventions, multimedia pieces, etc. However, the support is not more than one channel that canalize the project itself.
A transversal and interdisciplinary research where the machine, far from a cold body, acts as an integrating factor, multiplying human capacities for equal us to other living beings or mechanical things already equipped with them.
