This workshop is presented as part of the 'Making Patterns' exhibit showing at 117 Beekman Street.
Learn how to bling up your fashion in this Intro to Soft Circuits! Using conductive materials, fabrics, and sewable LED lights you will design and sew a wearable light circuit accessory to take home at the end of the workshop. The workshop will be structured to accommodate all skill levels from the expert seamstress who is just starting out with electronics, to the engineer who is just learning how to sew. Interested in digging deeper or want to pick up another set of supplies for a friend? You can pick up a Teknikio Fabtronic Sewing Set for $16 that comes with all of the supplies you need.
On September 12, 2014, Eyebeam and Shapeways presented a new collection of 3D-printed fashion garments. The work was produced during the Computational Fashion Master Class in July 2014, where ten fashion designers, engineers, and media artists from across North America and Asia came together to learn tech skills and collaboratively design work at the intersection of fashion and emerging technology. The exhibition takes place at Hotel Particulier in Manhattan, NY and is sponsored by CNL Mannequins and Joseph Cady.
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THANK YOU.
We share our regular world with billions of bacteria and fungi, but are for the most part unaware of how they shape our world -- unless we get sick. What if you could make a wearable biosensor that showed you in real-time how your own body's ecosystem works in concert with the environment?
Join The Cotard Syndicate for this workshop, where you will learn about their research and make a 3D-printed biosensor that you can wear, track, and read the data collected from your micro- and macro-ecosystems.
As part of the Computational Fashion initiative, Eyebeam is hosting a Fashion and Wearable Tech Demo Night on November 19. We’re looking for compelling product ideas and emerging startups who are working at the intersection of (wearable) technology, garments, jewelry, and accessories. Each participant will get a table in Eyebeam's exhibition space to do informal presentations and demonstrations.
Participants must have a finished product or working prototype that is intended for the commercial market. Sorry, we're not looking for student projects or work that is only in concept stage at this time.
