On Thursday 10 March, Alexa Pollmann and Will Pearson delivered a 5 hour workshop on Wearable Futures. Led by Alexa, the workshop was part of the week long, celebrating new media and new possibilities in creative disciplines permitted by technology. At the invitation of Professor Claudio Molina, the workshop took place at the historic small specialist university of Eina, located in the beautiful hillside gardens to the north of the city of Barcelona. With around 25 students, faculty and other university staff, the workshop focused on speculative design fiction; the possible, plausible and probable futures of wearables, with students working in pairs with future scenarios, with input from the workshop facilitators including a presentation entitled ‘A Short Illustrated History of Wearables’ which provided a playful interpretation of the current state of the art. With a pecha kucha to finish, Alexa and Will then took part in a 2 hour round table debate with figures from the creative industries in the city on the relevance and value of data for the creative practices supported at the institution.
