Celebrate the launch of Sabine Seymour's new book Functional Aesthetics at Eyebeam. Functional Aesthetics, the sequel to Seymour’s highly acclaimed book Fashionable Technology (Springer 2008), explores state-of-the-art artistic and design examples with a focus on their aesthetic and functional aspects. Chapters such as Context as Prerequisite, Body Sculpture, or Transparent Sustainability provide in-depth studies of visionary projects between the poles of fashion, design, technology, and sciences, which could stimulate new developments in the blossoming field of Fashionable Technology. The book also includes relevant information on DIY resources, publications, inspirations, and much more.

On view at the reception: Ripcurl's H-Bomb Heated Wetsuit, Gluejeans presented by Droog,, Lost Value's Zippy kits and lflect hats, SUN shirts by Moondial, miCoach from Adidas, paper electronics by Cecilia & Paola, and Jessica Floeh's Hanky Pancreas. Functional Aesthetics will be on sale at Eyebeam's bookstore.
