Infusing Art with Technology

Counting memories is a interactive installation by Chiharu Shiota. According to an article by Colossal, Shiota explains in a statement of the exhibition: Each number defines us individually but also connects us universally. Numbers comfort us, we share dates that are important to us, and they help us understand ourselves. Our history is collected through

Exercise 5: Art and Design Inspirations

The French artist Michel Blazy had a few installations using foam. These installations have foam oozing out of bins, or some tall and large structures. Audience can interact with the installation by touching the foam. Creating foam uses simply everyday materials, and the shape of the foams is indeterministic yet expected. There is only control

Exercise 1: Fabric sensory sleeves

This sensory sleeves interests me because the sensors are screenprinted directly into the fabric sleeve as opposed to attaching a sensor onto clothes, which has less a disruptive effect compared with wearing an additional sensor. @INPROCEEDINGS{7989649, author={M. C. {Yuen} and H. {Tonoyan} and E. L. {White} and M. {Telleria} and R. K. {Kramer}}, booktitle={2017 IEEE
