After decades of running her kinky Syrian lingerie store in the Hamidiya souk of Damascus, Teta Haniya comes to America bearing gifts. With over 60 years of Islamic teachings on seduction, and an arsenal of kitschy electronics, Teta Haniya hijacks the western panty, triggering the sexual liberation of the American woman.

Robot Clothes will be teaching Pocket Workshops to high school students as part of Eyebeam's Digital Day Camp program. This year's theme is wearables.  They will teach the basics of wearable computing materials(conductive fabrics, thread, and fasteners) through the fabrication and assembly of a robotic pocket that crawls on clothing.  Robot Clothes will lead a more advanced workshop for adults on the second day of the event as part of the Summer School at Eyebeam program.

In Re-Surface: The Facade of the Synthetic, KnoWear posits the concept that Post-Modern identity has turned from identifying with the body as a natural organism to the idea of the body as a synthetic product. Hypercritical to advertising and the media's impact on this idea, The Facade of the Synthetic features moving images in video form called ‘Body Billboards’, small electronic areas of advertisements placed on the skin surface, formed to follow the contours of the human body and inspired by classic tattoos hybridized with every day product brand names and logos. The Facade of the Synthetic utilizes OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) screens, a thin flexible display technology that receives and displays video input, incorporated with an installation of sampled and edited advertising campaigns projected on to the gallery walls, creating an ever-changing kaleidoscope of background images and noise.
