“Wearing Technology” Panel Talk at New School #WearableWednesday

If you’re in NYC, check out this panel discussion at The New School called Wearing Technology: Cultural and psychological impacts of tech on the body:

Eyebeam and The New School present a panel discussion that explores the cultural and psychological implications of wearing technology. The event will feature leading researchers in clinical psychology, contemporary art history, and fashion technology who will offer insights into the history of wearables and how the body is represented and experienced in fashion design and performance.

Susan Ryan (Louisiana State University), will discuss her recent book, Garments of Paradise (MIT Press), a comprehensive survey of wearable technology that lends a critical eye toward both the design and social context of our devices, from the Walkman to Google Glass. Miriam Steele (The New School) and Sabine Seymour(Parsons) will present their current research project, BodyMetaphor, which bridges design, art, and social science to examine fashion and wearable tech’s influence on self-perceptions and physiological assessments of the body. Wendy D’Andrea andSteven Freed (The New School) will examine the intersection between body awareness and physiological states, and the mediating influence of emotion.

Wearing Technology is organized as part of Eyebeam’s Computational Fashion initiative, which brings together artists, fashion designers, scientists, and technologists to explore emerging ideas and develop new work at the intersection of fashion and technology. Eyebeam is a nonprofit art center that supports and promotes dynamic and risk-taking work at the intersection of art and technology. Computational Fashion is supported in part by The Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
