Wearable Electronics course final presentations


Electronics and sensors allow artists to create interactive smart garments that produce sound and images in reaction to movement. They sense and communicate with the environment and the user, and may react to them. In some cases the garment is in connection with the Internet and exchanges information based on the data it has measured.

As the term ‘wearable’ suggests, these interactive artworks are carried by the user and in bodily connection with him or her.

The Wearable Electronics course has been organised during autumn 2011 in collaboration between Aalto University School of Art and Design, and Muu Artists’ Association. The participants who come from a variety of backgrounds such as new media, costume design, textile design, fine art and performing arts have been encouraged to create their own visions of wearable technology. They have worked in teams to carry out their ideas based on the Arduino development platform.

Welcome to experience these six unique projects – to see them in use and even to try some of them on.

Place: Muu Gallery (Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki) Time: Monday 5.12. at 17-19

Organised by Muu Artists’ Association and Aalto University

Teachers: Tomi Dufva and Jukka Hautamäki, and visiting teachers More about the course: http://wearable.mlog.taik.fi/

Wearable electronics-course at Aalto universityWearable electronics-kurssi Aalto yliopistossa

I’m recently teaching wearable electronics-course together with Jukka Hautamäki in Aalto university, University of Art & Design. I think it’s very interesting course with participation from different departments in university and also artists from artist association Muu.. You can follow the progress from our blog: wearable.mlog.taik.fi/ We also have demonstrations of our work at Muu Gallery 5th of december.Opetan parhaillaan yhdessä Jukka Hautamäen kanssa päällepuettavaan elektroniikkaan keskittynyttä kurssia Aalto yliopistossa, tadeteollisessa korkeakoulussa. Kurssi on erittäin mielenkiintoinen ja siihen osallistuu eri osastojen opiskelijoita sekä lisäksi taiteilijoita Muu ry:stäKurssillamme on oma blogi, johon keräämme mielenkiintoisia artikkeleita, ja dokumentoimme kurssitöiden valmistumista, seuraa blogia täällä: wearable.mlog.taik.fi/ Lisäksi meilä on demo päivä 5. 12 Muu Galleriassa.

Lecture on eTextiles

Next monday, nicely after mayday you can come to a very interesting presentation by Meg Grant about wearable technology in Muu Gallery, Helsinki.  Presentation is a part of a bigger course on wearable electronics that I will be teaching with Jukka Hautamäki in coming fall. We will also shortly present the course, for more info about it look here.
