REACTIVEfashion

REACTIVEfashion was a series of collaborative, cross-disciplinary explorations into wearable computing, conducted by Rebecca Grabman and Angela Sheehan in the spring of 2007 at Bennington College in Vermont. Combining elements of costume design and physical computing, the series set out “to augment, enhance, and explore the nuances of an individual’s relationship with the world in both one-on-one and group settings”.

The collection was shown at the Spring Fashion Show, a Do-It-Yourself LED Wrist Cuff Workshop and the Student Endowment for the Arts gallery show and featured the following, among others.

REACTIVEfashion was made possible by a grant from the Bennington Student Endowment for the Arts.
