Giulia Tomasello: Coded Bodies / workshop [23.-25.November 2020, 17H to 20H]

Coded Bodies is a series of workshops designed to learn basics of Arduino coding, soft wearables and the exploration of biological textiles. During the workshop, participants will be introduced to the world of Wearable Technology, learning the basics of electronics, Arduino coding, making and programming electronic sensors, developing a speculative concept and prototyping physical soft objects. Approaching traditional textile techniques combined with technology and smart materials as well exploring the potential of bacterial celluloses for textile futures in terms of growing living materials and creating speculative scenarios for second skins, sensors, and adaptive responsive structures.
