Social Fabrics: Wearable + Media + Interconnectivity is a time-based art
exhibition, designed as a modified runway show, of art as wearable media
and technology. Social Fabrics demonstrates convergences between
individual expression and statement making on the one hand, and the
phenomenology of network society on the other. Technological garments or
accessories with social capabilities are presented alongside works that
critique the implications of our digital media-infused and
fashion-driven lifestyles. Artworks are objects, systems,
mini-performances and interactive events.

Curated by Susan Ryan and Patrick Lichty
Presented by the Leonardo Education Forum together with the Center for
Interactive Arts and Engineering, the University of Texas at Dallas, and
the College of Art + Design at Louisiana State University.
