MAKr Exhibition Opens @CRUXSpace Friday in Philadelphia #WearableWednesday


It’s Design Week in Philly which means everyone in love with architecture, fashion and design is roaming the streets to get their fill. As they say, “Winter is coming”, so it’s a frenzy of the best kind. Kim Brickley and Andrew Cameron Zahn have brought together a colorful group of artists at CRUX Space for MAKr: high design and fashion meet technology. This will be an ADHD paradise with making, models and blinky glam. Andrew Dahlgren will be presenting his hacked retro programmable knitting machines and his array of coded skein art.


Tara Webb, a resident at The Hacktory, will be presenting her new circus inspired neck cuff collection. This one is the “Animal Trainer Ruff”, and you can see an Adafruit Flora in the pic.


Jewelry fans are going to be loving Doug Bucci’s 3D printed cascading spirals that are based on data from his own body. Trust me that you won’t guess what kind of data.


Enrica Ferrero has been doing some interesting work with fasteners, and this button activated LED pointed collar is a great example. Of course, I wouldn’t be dropping all these breadcrumbs unless there was a bit of a surprise. I’ll be there with some work that you recognize from Adafruit’s tutorials, like my Jewel Hair Stick. I’ll also be unveiling a new piece, and the only hint you get is that it mimics a colorful natural phenomenon. So, come out to CRUX Space and join me for some wearable tech fun.
