my semester project, I am hoping to create a new garment as part of my
research with the aesthetics + computation group at the media laboratory.
My research is targeted at the integration of fashion design with electronics
and computational design concepts, forcing "wearable computing"
to press ahead into the larger domain of the high fashion world.
I construct new garments that emphasize this integration, i feel it is
important to focus primarily on two key elements: 1. the aesthetics, beauty,
and comfort of the clothing, and 2. the use of new materials and technologies
that are not traditionally taken into consideration during clothing design.
my semester project, I will be making a bag as part of a series that uses
dynamic display devices to engage the wearer in the clothing items, to
act as informational tools that subtly assist the wearer throughout a
day, and to provide new, beautiful, and dynamic elements to ordinary clothing
hope to use the machining, molding, and material coatings to construct
the shape and chambers of the bag, then apply the electronic circuitry
lessons to make the dynamic display of the bag work.
