We share our regular world with billions of bacteria and fungi, but are for the most part unaware of how they shape our world -- unless we get sick.  What if you could make a wearable biosensor that showed you in real-time how your own body's ecosystem works in concert with the environment?

Join The Cotard Syndicate for this workshop, where you will learn about their research and explore the growths through special microscopes; then make a biosensor that you can wear, track, and read the data collected from your micro- and macro-ecosystems.

MATERIALS (included in workshop fee)

- 3D-Printed Holder

- Agar

Wearable Weapons awaken the power of vulnerability. 

Wearable Weapons is currently building visual and interactive wearable costumes for an entertainer or singer to wear during a performance or music video.

Right now we are focusing on building a new series of collars with hacked Violet Wands connected to software that pulses mini-electrical arcs through voice interaction.  This is part of a larger series of interactive costumes built with different forms of electricity, fire, sound sensors, open source software, hardware, plant fibers, confiscated scissors from airport security, recycled razor blades, and zip ties.

You might ask... and what are Violet Wands?
