Wearable Technology and Soft Computing
“Electronic Textiles: Wearable Computers, Reactive Fashion, and Soft Computation” by Joanna Berzowska
According to Joanna Berzowska, there is a lack of personal expression and intimacy with wearable technology. She states that the intentions of wearable technology focuses too greatly on replacing or augmenting the human experience rather than foregrounding the importance of textiles from a social, culture, and economic context. She prematurely dismisses the practical uses of wearable technology as an art form. I think the use of wearable technology is essential and inevitable due to progression and evolution of modern society. Technology exists as a new form of language and communication that is being explored to aid and enhance the human experience rather than eliminate it.
