18/03/2016 Kasia Molga
Call out for costume designer volunteers with good craft skills in hand stitching to help construct wearable technology for Human Sensor, an exciting public art project to take place in Manchester in July 2016.
A chance to work with media artist Kasia Molga and internationally renowned scientists from Kings College London to construct ‘coded couture’ – beautiful garments that respond to air quality via illuminated animations. This wearable technology comprises the central element of a high profile science art intervention – part of this years’ European City of Science in Manchester July 2016.
We need students with good craft skills for hand stitching. You will be required to stitch the laser-cut part of a garment to an under-garment in a specific way working around cables and electronics. There may be some soldering and work with a sewing machine. An interest in wearable technology is desirable but not essential – this is a chance to learn and gain experience.
Deadline: Please send an expression of interest by Thursday 14th April 2016 with information on your relevant experience to firstname.lastname@example.org
Duration: 7 – 14 days
Location: Studio in Muswell Hilll
Start date: Late April – till end of May
Expenses: Lunch and travel. Tea and biscuits!
Award winning arts and science organisation Invisible Dust is proud to partner with Europe’s nominated City of Science, Manchester in 2016 (ECOS). As part of EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF), the largest multidisciplinary science meeting in Europe, we will present Human Sensor by Kasia Molga.
This commission has been created through a collaboration between the artist and Professor Frank Kelly, Environmental Health, King’s College London with support from ESOF, The European City of Science Manchester 2016.
