Competition brief :

Wearables are becoming an active, supplemental skin that not only protect our body but also facilitate functions such as growth, movement, respiration and nutrition or rehabilitate the environment. Becoming a new medium able to regulate the relation between our body and its surroundings, wearables can now collect and exchange information producing dynamic outputs.

Reshape aims to enhance these impulses in fashion design, proposing a new challenge to makers and designers: RESHAPE17 | Programmable Skins Competition.

The proposals will focus on wearables as a prosthetic skin providing augmented functions. Reshape17 goes beyond ubiquitous computing, towards integrated and holistic strategies with the objective to eliminate electronics, electronics, in favor of programmable materials. They expect the design for the competition to respect the Reshape ideology, and the judging criteria consists in CONCEPT IDEA, PROTOTYPE FABRICABILITY and DISSEMINATION STRATEGY.
