ReKnit Tales > Wearable Art Brainstorm
ReKnit Tales is a collaborative project which will include work by digital artists who
are creating new versions of well known tales. The works may take the form of digital stories that can be viewed on small electronic devices which can be embedded into wearable upcycled fashions (hoodies, sweaters, vests, aprons, hats, handbags...that have been modified into artworks).
Students : think about your own approach to this project.
You may use the story you have already worked on, or another story of your choosing. You must transform ( up-cycle) a wearable object with images or attach a device for viewing images of your story. You might experiment with portable devices, augmented reality, or digital image transfer onto tactile materials. The digital stories could take various forms, from intimate slideshows embedded into clothing to large screen projections for a live fashion show event. We can ALSO test using the marker system in SnapDragonAR to make quicktime movies and images viewable on the wearable artworks.
