UrbanIxD Summer School

Fabrika Split

Fabrika Split is part of the Big Data series.



The Fabrika Split project explores the impact of wearable displays on people and society. Through the development of iWear, a t-shirt computer that allows people to interact with their digital content on their body, we raise concerns on how technological advancements change our daily routines. What happens when personal messages are displayed in the open? What kind of body movements will we use to access our content? What sort of urban rituals will we develop? Through this fictional critique, Fabrika Split wants to challenge the seemingly normal behaviour that heavy smartphones usage has brought about.
