I will take part in the panel discussion during the Specter event.
Starting at 5.54 PM on June 21st, coinciding with Summer Solstice, this evening will include an immersive art program as well as a cross-disciplinary dialogue between scholars from different scientific fields, artists, (digital) designers, technologists and healers.
The dialogue will serve to map the territory between different disciplines, covering terminology that is used, but interpreted differently, in the fields of technological world-building and ancient self-mastery.
On November 21st the official closure of the WEAR Sustain project will take place. Financing from WEAR has made Meditation Lab Experimenter Kit possible. The team is looking forward to presenting the final prototype. We are also very curious to see the results of the other 45 teams. Besides a fashion show of all the prototypes the day will be filled with a symposium on different aspects of sustainable wearables. All this will take place at Bozar in Brussels. Entry is free. You can get your tickets here.
