Abstract:

  • Join a discussion with members from the Corpus Electric Collective (CEC) as they discuss the creation of reactive garments for an interactive fashion performance. The CEC—comprised of New Mexico Highlands Media Arts faculty and students, members of the fashion team: Taos Runway Vigilantes, and high school students from the Taos and Las Vegas STEMarts workshops—will discuss the process of creating technologically infused garments that change colors and respond to sound and light.

    Corpus Electric is a tech-fashion collaboration between Media Arts students from New
    Mexico Highlands University, the Taos Runway Vigilantes, and students from the ISEA2012
    Visiting Artists Teaching Program. Participants integrate technology into wearable costumes
    and accessories, multimedia backdrops, and lighting for a tech-fashion performative event.
