ISMA 302: Interactive Wearables

This course explores the notion of fabric as a responsive interface. It will introduce students to new material and conceptual possibilities for interactivity: creating embroidered circuits, screen-printing or painting with reactive inks, embedded mobile networks and the potentials of woven electronics. This material and conceptual exploration will be presented within a contextual framework of contemporary practice, and will explore the creation of hybrid works that investigate intersections between art and design, sculpture and performance, fashion and computing, the body and its context, public and private.

Priority is given to ISMA students in Years 3 and 4. Students outside of the registration priority group may register/waitlist for this course as of the registration rule release date.
