    From 2009 - 2011 Hannah was a graduate student in the MIT Media Lab's High-Low Tech research group led by Leah Buechley


    In 2009 Hannah and Mika were both research fellows at the Distance Lab


    Between 2003 - 2009 Hannah and Mika were both students at Interface Cultures
    We support the Open Source Hardware movement. All our own designs published on this website are released under the Free Cultural Works definition
    Workshops

    Wearable Studio Workshops at ARS

    September 3&4 2015, 13:00 – 15:00

    As part of the A Wearable Studio Practice exhibit at the Ars Electronica festival, we will open our mobile electronics lab for up to 5 participants at a time.

    Participants will be made familiar with the equipment, tools, and wearable furniture comprising the mobile laboratory. Then we will use the studio to build functioning wearable electronics on location with each other. In parallel we will also be testing and developing designs of this portable studio, while discussing its role in future visions of the city and the wilderness.
