Marios Samdanis is a PhD candidate at Birkbeck College, University of London. His research relies on the intersection of innovation studies, new media studies and organization studies, focusing on diverse art and design fields, such as visual arts, fashion, sculpture, architecture and performance. In particular, he aims to understand how the effect of digitalization remediates each art and design form, leading to artistic innovations and new organizational forms.
His paper ‘fashionable wearables in digital performance’ is part of a broader research in fashionable technologies. Following the first part of this study on digital fashion innovation through the emergence of the wearable interface, the second part explores interdisciplinary links of fashionable wearables with various art and design fields, such as interactive architecture, and in this case digital performance.
