Description

Toronto Wearables Meetup 35:
Dangerous Electronics with
Hannah-Perner Wilson

Spring is here and we're happy to share that e-textile expert Hannah Perner-Wilson will be visiting!

About Hannah:

Hannah Perner-Wilson's work applies conductive materials towards craft techniques to develop new styles of building electronics. Hannah received a B.Sc. from the University for Art and Industrial Design Linz and an M.Sc. from the MIT Media Lab. Since 2006 Hannah has been collaborating with Mika Satomi as the collective KOBAKANT. In 2009, KOBAKANT published the website titled How To Get What You Want, where they share their textile sensor designs and DIY approach to E-Textiles.

Drop by the Social Body Lab to say hi and meet Hannah. We'll be building dangerous electronics from e-textiles and dressmaker pins, inspired by Hannah's recent projects and workshops:
