Wearable Technology

Fall 2018

Taught By: Katherine Moriwaki

Section: A

CRN: 7622

Credits: 3

This course investigates the relationship between technology, fashion, craftsmanship, science, and design in a theoretical and practical framework. Technologies enrich the cognitive characteristics of our human epidermis and stimuli of our senses. Contextual analysis, developed in group projects, reveals and defines the aspects of communication, aesthetics and functionality with specific focus on the idea of the garment as an interface. A parallel understanding of physical computing and interdisciplinary design issues validate the feasibility of such (wearable) object/garment. The culmination of the collaboration studio is the creation of wearable objects/garments that demonstrates functionality and aesthetic appeal.
