What gizmo can we use to read our minds, expose our hearts, or settle disputes? What gadget can improve our communication with house plants or buildings or glaciers?
We are rapidly reinventing the ways in which we relate to each other and the world around us. Working with communication and body-centric technologies in the creative context enables artists and designers to ask questions, tell stories, and predict possible futures. The projects they create can speak to needs, longings, and desires not currently attended to by existing devices and systems.
In this talk Kate Hartman will present a collection of prototypes, tools, and methods that allow us to reconsider the ways in which we relate and communicate and discuss the challenges and opportunities for work that sits close to the skin.
