CREATE10-innovative interactions Ingi Helgason conference
The blend of thought and practice that the CREATE conference wants to encourage was nicely summed up recently by interaction designer, Jack Schulze: "No one cares about what you think, unless you do what you think. No one cares what you do, unless you think about what you do." Our past conferences have been well received for providing a friendly and informal setting where networking, discussion and practical work are high on the agenda.

Hotspot Bloom Karen Lee (Parsons School of Design) school, wifi, network
The idea for Hotspot Bloom began as a portable sculpture for open parks around Manhattan. When I first started this project, I found there was little physical demarcation for open wi-fi networks. Most people didn't even realize that free wi-fi could be found in many of the parks around NYC.

Public Fashion Orchestra, Network Ideologies Alexandra Von Feldmann fashion house, fashion, intelligent clothes, buy, sell
The "Public Fashion Orchestra" is a fashion house which sells intelligent clothes and their behaviours. All clothes of this brand are networked with each other and when in range are able to share designs and eventually other data; the fashion designer is able to feed new designs and behaviours into the system. The clothes do not only receive, transmit, transform and show the data, they also remember and thereby limit it: once the clothes are "full", they cannot participate in the network anymore unless you get rid of their data manually: do the laundry! Emily Turrettini social network, new technologies, text messaging, mobile content, cell phones, weblogs, geek, nerd is the entry point of three weblogs devoted to cell phones and mobile content, focusing on text messaging and cell phone usage around the world, tracking the latest news and social impact of these new technologies.

Unravel @ siggraph 2006 tech, wearable, exhibition, show, fashion
Unravel: the SIGGRAPH2006 Fashion Show presents a runway show of innovative and experimental works in computational and conceptual couture, fashion with a social agenda, science-inspired form, and new technologies of material fabrication. Unravel brings together the work of designers and artists from the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia who are seeking to redefine the notion of ‘wearable.’ In the increasingly mobile nature of contemporary life, it has become important to contemplate how the devices we carry and the garments we wear converge into a ‘secondary skin’ which function as an extension of ourselves, in both ability and perception. By using fashion, a medium which has always been associated with self-expression and personal identity, these designers seek to demonstrate how the use (or misuse) of technology and its modes of production have the power to stimulate, delight, and inspire in ways as yet untapped in the fashion world. Gone are the stereotypical bulky cyborg devices; what emerged are garments of beauty, subtlety and elegance in form. Some bring to light important social issues — redefining our notions of personal space, networked environments, and issues of privacy and protection. Others relish in pure delight, reminding us how technology also has the power to enhance our personal relationships and celebrate fantasy and play as part of the human condition.

Zeroes and Ones: Digital Women and the New Technoculture Sadie Plant 1997 book, digital, computers, women, craft
In this bold manifesto on the relationship between women and machines, Sadie Plant explores the networks and connections implicit in nonlinear systems and digital machines. Shattering the myth that women are victims of technological change, Zeros + Ones shows how women and women's work in particular--weaving and typing, computing and telecommunicating--have been tending the machinery of the digital age for generations, the very technologies that are now revolutionizing the Western world.
