Intimate Infrastructures

Thu, May 25, 19:30 to 21:30, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Floor: 2, Indigo Ballroom B


This presentation will include a variety of prototypes and images from several collaborative projects with fashion designers including Code to Ware, Pancreas at the Pool and Biomaterial Matters. Drawing on theory from communications and science and technology studies, these projects raise critical questions about emerging technologies including computational fashion, 3D printing, the quantified self and biotechnology through practice-based research. They interrogate the aesthetics and politics around the intimate infrastructures that participate in everyday life. The prototypes engage themes around gender, disability, invisibility, materiality and the non-human.
