I’m very happy to present you the LED based work by young student from Rijeka’s Art Academy – Aleksandra Ana Bukovic. Luckily, I’ve stumbled on Aleksandra’s work while browsing through the photographs of all events from the Science Festival, held during April in several cities throughout Croatia.
While attending the course on industrial design (jewellery design), Aleksandra participated in the jewellery exhibition and show which was held as a part of The Science Festival in Rijeka (the topic of the festival was light) under the mentorship of the professor Nenad Roban (I blogged about him, too ) and professor Lara Badurina. She presented a hat-shaped light installation for the body.

Eta Sadar Breznik‘s space oriented woven sculptures present all possible views on thread from an architect. Monumental and almost like a skyscraper structured, but subtle tapestry, opens another visual perspective on fibers and textiles.
Eta Sadar Breznik also express herself in wearable objects, using strong weaving density for her objects combined with transformable functions of every particular garment. All photos by Anda Klancic, Blaz Zupancic (c)

Erich Zainziger does consultancy, training and design of interactive fashion, e-textiles and wearable electronic. He’s also a blogger behind talk2myShirt dedicated to smart fabrics and wearable technology.
Because of his previous experience with Philips Company I wanted to interview him from the moment when I decided to cover the fields of wearables… Erich lives and works now in Philippines and runs his own wear tech company Elextile… Hence, let’s hear his thoughts on the wear tech scene…

Data visualization fascinates me, too. People hooked up to wearables sometimes use it as an interesting way to combine garments and illustrative parts or schematic elements used in visual representation of data. It’s an open and creative field for last few years, but basically very old visual technique. It’s almost old as the history of cartography…
Jonathan Wood’s wearable installation Suspension Dimension is an example how you can make an actual object that looks like 3D spacey data visualization… Suspension Dimension was awarded in 2008 at the awe-inspiring Montana World of WearableArt™ Awards Show in Wellington, New Zealand.

While I was diggin’ through the archives of the Montana Supreme World of Wearable Art Award, I’ve found really nice discovery… Second Skin (2009) by Hayley May and Fiona Christie from Wellington, New Zealand.
I’ve managed to find on the web only three pictures of this interesting wearable sculpture… and here is the whole story behind the project, covered by New Zealand’s fair&blog Craft 2.0.
