DO WEARABLES DREAM OF DISOBEDIENCE?
Disobedient Wearables is a critical project, led by Design Friction, exploring the unexpected crossovers between wearable technologies and social issues.
Disobedient Wearables questions how these connected objects strapped to our bodies can disobey to…
… the goal it has been designed for.
… the users’ needs and expectations.
… the structures of power having produced, supplied or exploited it.
The project is a three-piece exploration:
– A triptych of three speculative and critical wearables, highlighting uncanny impacts of wearable technologies on our everyday life.
– A toolkit, to help imagining a new set of disobedient wearables.
– A public workshop, to raise awareness on the possible misuses and abuses of wearables in intricate social contexts.
