Talk Abstract: Advances in electronic textiles (e-textiles), embedded computing, and biometric sensing enable new types of wearable interactive experiences. In this talk, I will introduce three e-textile projects from my research group: BodyVis, Social Fabric Fitness, and ILikeThisShirt.com which explore and push on how computational clothing can be used to facilitate group interaction, provoke self-inquiry, and stimulate introspection.
Background: I gave this talk at the National Academy of Science's "DC Art Science Evening Rendezvous" (DASER) at the Keck Center. The evening's theme was "technology and creativity" highlighted by the opening of University of Maryland Computer Science Professor Ben Shneiderman's “Every AlgoRiThm has ART in it: Treemap Art Project.” In addition to Shneiderman and myself, the other speakers included Manuel Lima, a designer, author, researcher, and lecturer, and Jonah Brucker-Cohen, an assistant professor of digital media and networked culture, Lehman
College, City University of New York.
