8. Wearables



The data gloves from KATHARINA BREDIES looks beautiful! She wrote a intresting work about e-textiles with a lot of samples on Diva Portal:

Also the Knithacker has some nice examples:


References & Inspiration


I feel i want to keep my distance rather than let technology closer to my body. The dependency that we already have with our mobil phone is not desirable for me to increase. This week I feel like I want my independence back, I don't feel free when I surround myself with more technology, I feel wired and restricted. Anything natural in the space left behind. We need technology for us to connect more. how can I connect more to the freedom?

Artist need empty unknown space to create something new. My critical thinking about technology and wearables bring my also back on the way , who i could hack with textiles, that authority, companies and health systems watch me less? That’s still one of my main questions, and I want to spend research on this theme, to find out what already exist.

Wearables are useful for, showtime, safety or in the health. It’s always something about measure. I don’t want that each step in my life is measured, documented or watched. I am technophobic?

Questions I have: Can be on a e-textile some intuition ?

footnote fabrication files

Fabrication files are a necessary element for evaluation. You can add the fabrication files at the bottom of the page and simply link them as a footnote. This was your work stays organised and files will be all together at the bottom of the page. Footnotes are created using [ ^ 1 ] (without spaces, and referenced as you see at the last chapter of this page) You can reference the fabrication files to multiple places on your page as you see for footnote nr. 2 also present in the Gallery.

Code Example

Use the three backticks to separate code.

// the setup function runs once when you press reset or power the board
void setup() {
  // initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN as an output.

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);   // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);    // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
