Smart Textiles

There’s been no shortage of discussion concerning the artist’s affect on society as of late. More specifically, there’s been growing interest in how best to integrate the sensibility of the artist into the ethos of the burgeoning technological era that’s reshaping our ideas about civilization. What is certain is that the realm of possibility is growing and the prevailing assumption is that the artist will play a key role in this process. Now more than ever, we need individuals who are willing to re-envision the world, and its complexity, through their own imaginations rather than the narrow definitions set forth in the 20th century.

Baltimore Hackathon

Since the proliferation of the personal computer, we’ve seen the emergence of an entirely unique vein of artistry. Like other creative subsets, hacker culture thrives on openness, collaboration and a hands-on work ethic. We ventured to the The First Annual Baltimore Hackathon to document the event and possibly learn a thing or two. What we found out was that, though hacker culture seems to be isolated in small pockets of the community, the truth is their influence pervades throughout society. Many of us are undertaking similar projects and finding the same ideas independently. Our conclusion is that hackerdom, born in basements, garages and college campuses, has grown into tech incubators, hack spaces and powerful multinational corporations like Google and Facebook.
