Digital Day Camp

Digital Day Camp 2005 (DDC05) focused on the significance and history of the uniform in US culture. Students studied the fundamentals of fashion and design, including the politics surrounding the implementation of various uniforms. In addition, student participants learned basic circuitry and physical computing via workshops with different artists investigating the use of wearable technologies. Participants learned to create and incorporate such components as light and sound sensors, LED tags and switches into the uniforms that, as teams, they were challenged to prototype. DDC 2005 concluded with a fashion show and exhibition of the uniforms developed during the 3 weeks of the program.
