During this workshop we will explore the question of what is art? And what is fashion? And what do they have in common?
We'll look at the history of interactive and wearable art and conceptualize and create our own piece. We will consider the importance of material, concept, and problem solving in terms of how to communicate ideas and will collaboratively produce several wearable and interactive art pieces.
