Recent development in computing has moved devices increasingly closer to our bodies; as a result, significant work with wearables and embodied technology is well underway across the University of Minnesota.
On Friday October 20, 2017, please join a team of interdisciplinary scholars in exploring what it means to technologize ourselves through immersive and embodied devices. We will visit and “experience” multiple studio spaces as a means to explore the intersections and juxtapositions of embodied technologies as studied across multiple disciplines that include art, health, science and engineering, design, education, and composition and technical communication. Our goal will be to spur inter-institutional collaboration as we explore the future of embodied technologies and the critical, cultural, and creative imaginaries they evoke.
Draft schedule: Lunch at noon, studio space immersive experiences from 1:00-4:00pm, with discussion and reception to follow.
