our wearableMANIFESTO:

DIVERSITY
“plurafunctionality”
inclusiveness, accessibility, empathy
a willingness to engage with everyone
open to different ways of doing things
our design is simple to understand, copy and customize
there is no exact copy, every one is different and all of them belong

CARE
we care about our environment, we notice what remains
our design produces zero waste

SHARE
knowledge is power
transparent design spreads power evenly among those who can see
open source, knowledge sharing….

COMMUNITY
as individuals we crave community
….

EVER CHANGING
our design evolves every time somebody remakes it
we do not resist change, we do not conserve energy, we expend it to fuel
Everything changes and nothing stands still (https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Heraclitus)

copy-improve-feedback

ALTERNATIVES
stay flexible
use of materials so they could be sourced locally

WICKED PROBLEMS
capacitive sensing on the body is a wicked problem
dealing with complex power structures (Google’s “Project Jaquard”)

STAY WEIRED
not everything has to have a reason
defy disciplines, standards, authority, boxes
resist being cornered
humor, self reflection, inner resistance, resistance to my inner resistance, and other convoluted inner knotted manifold problems….
