TECHNOSENSUAL. where fashion meets technology presents electronic couture created by international haute-tech designers and engineers and investigates the ways in which fashion and technology can be combined. By taking a close look at the world of technologically enhanced garments, TECHNOSENSUAL raises
questions on how such wearable technologies may impact the social, emotional, and cultural layers of society. In a future where electronics are predicted to be embedded in everyday objects, what kind of clothes will we wear? Will future techno fashion be purely aesthetic? Or will it expand our awareness, acting like an intelligent second skin? Will we become super sensory, physically aware of data flows, communicating our internal states through the garments we wear? Or will our smart clothing spy on us, betraying our confi dence and making us dependent on technology? And, most pertinently perhaps, how will we socialize in our world when we are supervised by technology?
