Embodied Interactions: Wearables, Ethics and Shaping Connections

In the past few years, exciting leaps and bounds have been made in creating materials that integrate electronics into wearable and e-textiles. Still, some persistent challenges remain – particularly in fully streamlining a fragmented supply chain. As a result, tech keeps taking the lead – pushing the expressive, embodied and meaningful application of it to the fringes. This talk explores how we can come together as a community of designers, artists and technologist and build a better paradigm of how we want our wearable environment to interact with our bodies, those close to us and the world around us.
