Fashion and Wearable Tech and Human Computer Interaction

This aspect of the conference will focus the Caress of the Gaze and other fashion related projects. Caress of the Gaze is a printed digitally artificial skin which meets the gaze of people and makes them think about different concepts like intimacy, sex or personal identities. The Iranian architect and interactive designer Behnaz Farahi, who currently lives in US, works with these concepts in order to improve the relationship between human beings and the environment, through the design inspired by natural systems.

Digital Design and Mathematics

Merging digital design, algorithm, art and science, Furnished Fluid was created by the Japanese artist and engineer Akira Wakita in order to make visible the airflows that we are practically unaware of in our daily lives. By applying fluid simulation technology — with seemingly no relation to daily life — to the objects overflowing in our surroundings, the complex and elaborate air flow and ecosystem that are invisible to the naked eye but present all around us are made apparent.

More than 15 presentations, networking area, exhibitions and much more!

During two days, artists, students and professors from Universities around the world, experts of Technological Research Centers and Art and Technologic world professionals will meet in Bilbao, Spain, to share their vision about the artistic and technological universe. It is also a great opportunity to enjoy professional and inspiring networking during the included lunches and social events with the speakers and attendees in Bilbao (Spain), a European capital full of gastronomy, architecture, culture and leisure.
