Artists in Wearable

  • Anja Hertenberger (DE) is an artist who researches identity in relation to media, surveillance, power, control and man-machine interaction. Her fascination for electronics and writing small programs started during her masters ‘Interactive Media and Environments.’ In her recent projects she combines electronics and programming with her earlier passion for textiles. Together with Barbara Pais and Danielle Roberts she developed e-pressed (2009), a shirt that displays feedback about the wearer’s stress levels. Her most recent work is Hysterical Bubble (2009-2010), a wearable project consisting of four suits, each one with an embroidered textile bubble that inflates or deflates in reaction to the proximity of the group members to each other.

Theory : The Use of Masks in Counseling: “Creating Reflective Space By: Heather C. Trepal -Wollenzier and Kelly L. Wester Trepal- Wollenzier, H. C., & Wester, K. L. (2002). The use of masks in counseling: Creating reflective space.Journal of Clinical Activities, Assignments & Handouts in Psychotherapy Practice, 2(2), 123 – 130

” ..mask can be used in counseling: (a) to represent two sides of a

conflict or dilemma, (b) to express one’s identity in a group, (c) to explore  dreams and imagery, or (d) to express a social role “.

“In therapeutic mask work, the mask is used as a projective technique to separate one part of the self from another. “

 

Mask making Digital

Data-masks by Sterling Crispin , are face masks which were created by reverse engineering facial recognition and detection algorithms. These algorithms were used to guide an evolving system toward the production of human-like faces. These evolved faces were then 3D printed as masks, shadows of human beings as seen by the minds-eye of the machine-organism. This exposes the way the machine, and the surveillance state, view human identity and this makes aspects of these invisible power structures visible.

Data-Masks are animistic deities brought out of the algorithmic-spirit-world of the machine and into our material world, ready to tell us their secrets, or warn us of what’s to come.

“Oracle    by Jake Stollery  is an amalgam of concepts tied together by the common thread of the user interface. To that end, it is a reflection of AI and UI as they exist in society’s consciousness: On first glance masculine, cold and austere; yet muted in its austerity and restrained by a warmth that is undeniably feminine.

 Oracle was crafted by utilising a hacked Kinect depth sensor as a 3D scanner, modeled in 3D space and 3D laser printed using a durable Nylon Polymer.”

  • Soft cyborg, by Rachael Kess Felt mask ; eyelid moved by servo motors

    “soft cyborg (reveal) (formerly soft robot (reveal)) is a piece of performance art that encompasses work from four classes that I completed in the 2010 Fall semester at OCAD University: Body as Material: Performance by Artists, Fibre: Implementing the History of the 19th and 20th Century, Fibre: Constructed Design 2 and Wearable Technology 1. The piece consists of a felted mask that has electronic components embedded into it; the mask blinks periodically through the use of mini-servo motors and a LilyPad Arduino.( instructions in Make : wearable electronics p 172)and here. The second part of the piece is a woven mask/hood that was created using the double weave technique. Both fibre pieces were used in this performance as a way of exploring the potential for masks to reveal and conceal the technological/robotic body….”
