Nanofibres and Fashion Technology at g.moda.

Informative post from g.moda outlining the qualities of nanotechnology. I am very interested in how materials can offer the thermal gain that our own body’s  materials offers us. And now we have nanofibres with thermal storage properties. Other properties these fibres have are:

waterproof but breathable

anti-bacterial

greater absorbency (wicking)

power generating

conductive

elastic

luminscent

+ Hanky Pancreas™.

Jessica Floeh uses a insulin pump herself, and for her masters chose to focus on the socio-psychological impact of wearable diabetes technologies.

Through working with a group of women with diabetes in New York she was inspired to create designs. Hanky Pancreas is a series of products that can be attached onto insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors.

It’s a nice simple and relatively cheap alternative that offers women some choice in how they wear the devices.

strange, magical and mesmeric, this exhibition by Matt Pyke (Universal Everything) is called Super-Computer-Romantics, and deals with anthropomorphism.

The performers interact with visuals and sound, to explore ideas of identity and I think embodiment. Visually arresting and intriguing – I want to know how they did it!
