Open Culture + Wearables Skillshare [tr Istanbul]

ISEA 2011 presents Open Culture + Wearables Skillshare with Valérie Lamontagne and Mika Satomi :: September 18, 2011; 9:00 am – 6:00 pm :: Karakoy Communication Center Terrace, Sabanci University, Orhanli, Tuzla 34956 Istanbul.

A New Performativity: Wearables and Body-Devices

[Image: Assa Ashuach’s “My Trousers”] A New Performativity: Wearables and Body-Devices by Danielle Wilde:

ABSTRACT: In their relatively short history, wearables and body-devices have evolved from cyborg-like extensions and utilitarian solutions aimed at enhancing efficiency, to poetic representations and experiences that give form to the imagination through indirect and abstract transformations.

By engaging in an embodied, pre-verbal discourse such works encourage observer empathy in a way that shifts from traditional performance forms such as dance and theatre. Observer can be interactor and roles of performer and audience are blurred or no longer apply. Continue reading
