“(…)Curated by Susan E. Ryan and Patrick Lichty, the show’s subtitle is ‘Wearable Media Interconnectivity’ and the selected works demonstrate ‘convergences between individual expression and statement making, on the one hand, and the phenomenology of ‘network society’ on the other.’ If that sounds a bit brainy to you, consider that the exhibition is a tricked-out fashion show in which artists combine wearable art, locative media, sensor technology, and social commentary on life in a high tech society. As the curators point out, ‘Fashion and digital technology have been interdependent at least since the development of Jacquard’s loom in the 1800’s.’ But now digital code and dress codes have merged, allowing artists and their muses to express themselves in provocative new ways. – Marisa Olson””
