Resources on Wearables

I found this wonderful blog about all sorts of materials to build wearable prototypes. They have extensive lists of resources for Conductive Fabrics, Conductive Thread, Velcros, Gels, Foams… The blog is How to Get What you Want [www.kobakant.at] Custom Plugs One thing to think about is the building of custom plugs so the circuit is … Continue reading

I fell in love with Transistor

(Originally posted by Olga in http://www.viralprojects.com) I have recently started to suffer from a weird affection; one I didn’t think was possible: I fell in love with Transistor. This fascinating machine composed of n- and p-type semiconductors has enough personality as to allow current through it only under certain conditions. For transmission to be enabled … Continue reading

Prototype: Sensing the Sun through Vibration

It’s almost a week that we are here in Southend on a short residency at Metal as part of the Digital Explorations programme. Lots going on, some of which is documented here. Below is a post on the prototype I’ve worked on the past two days (I’m copying what I’ve posted on Metal/DEC blog) . … Continue reading

Deep Media Ecologies (project description)

Deep Media Ecologies uses fairly simple media prototypes to explore the vast field of infra-verbal body communication. These speculative media systems provide physical and conceptual entry points to tap into more subtle, perhaps unconscious, infra-empirical modes of transmission between bodies. Simple electronic circuits become the toolkit to navigate and widen the ecology of signals and … Continue reading

Light & Mood log (explained)

This week’s experiment is a Light & Mood log. It consists on monitoring both my light exposure and the variations of my “mood”. It is a practical exercise that I do as a mode of training. More than trying to prove any direct correlation between these two variables I’m trying to engender a more meaningful … Continue reading

Light Log Test

Finally the wearable light sensor with the SD card is ready. I did a test today for one hour. The values are represented in the graph above. I took 360 measurements (one every 10 sec).

    Olga carries practical and theoretical research in the field of media arts. She works as a co-editor with Furtherfield.org while she pursues a practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. Her research project looks into assemblages of sunlight, human bodies and machines. She is particularly interested on subtle modes of communication across bodies of radically different nature. She looks at the ways in which electronic circuits, computational systems, endocrine processes and neurological happenings intermingle. The tools she develops are speculations about the undercurrents of body communication.
