About the Talk
How can technology interpret, acknowledge, or extend the human form? And how can objects that live in the bodysphere enhance, inhibit, or mediate our social interactions? This talk will present both solo projects by Kate Hartman as well as collaborative projects from the Social Body Lab - a research, art, and design lab dedicated to exploring body-centric technologies in the social context.
