Human Nature

Fri 30 June | 13:15 - 15:15




In the field of wearable technology, or so-called ‘e-textiles’, the relationship between body, technology and environment takes centre stage. How can technology help us connect to our bodies and maximize our senses? During this workshop, you will experience in a more intuitive way what e-textiles or wearable technology could mean for you. In a playful way, through a few movement exercises, we will explore your senses. We will experiment through physical contact with things and others around us, as participants will discover and explore an added layer of communication. Lastly, with a prepared suit embedded with electronics, the participants will interpret the sensation of movement and their connection to others by way of sound.

For this workshop you need to register in advance.
