Workshop "Wearables: Garment as interface"
2016.11.23 // Workshop
During the 18-19 November 2016 in the context of DEBUT 2016
we tought a workshop about wearables at ESDEMGA ( School of Fashion of Galicia) from de University of Vigo.
During two intensive days we tutorized students projects in the way to incorpórate wearable technology to their projects. To do that we used arduino harware and software platform, as well we used diferent kind of sensors and conductive fabrics, thread an yarn in order to créate soft circuits that allow us to incorpórate them to garments.
Creation of body-technology interfaces Workshop >
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.
