Wearable Technology

Fall 2019

Taught By: Katherine Moriwaki

Section: A

CRN: 5828

Credits: 3

What are the dominant modes of engagement with wearable technology and how does this manifest in computational design practice? What kind of relationship do wearables have with the body? How can computational fashion and e-textiles reinforce or question existing narratives or social norms? And how is wearable technology used as a material for design? These are some of the questions this class will explore through hand-on activities, lectures, readings, and critique. We will examine the topic of wearable technology through an intersectional framework drawing from feminist and queer perspectives, disability studies, and critical race theory to locate current practice in a historicized context. Students will develop creative projects in response to material covered in the course.
