Seven Cleveland Institute of Art students and two Case Western Reserve University School of Engineering students rose to a 21st century challenge: design wearable technology that incorporates light for a strong visual impact before a live audience. The creators will present these items of fashion, concept and functionality at IN THE DARK, a wearable-technology-with-light competition that has its final scheduled public showing at the Great Lakes Science Center’s “Yuri’s Night Space Party” on April 12:
10-10:15pm: Awards CEREMONY, with NASA astronaut and shuttle pilot, Greg Johnson, on the Discover Stage, NASA Glenn Visitor Center, Level 1
Since October, students have been working on their unique and innovative wearable technologies that include light. In January, the works premiered at MOCA Cleveland; in February, students showed their work at Brite Winter festival; and in March at Cleveland’s Mini Maker Faire.
As part of the design process, the entries have been revised and further refined for each successive venue, with final judging for the awards competition taking place at the Science Center. Each venue has also included the opportunity for visitors/viewers to participate in a crowd favorite selection process, the results of which will be considered in the final judging process.
IN THE DARK is a program of the Cleveland Institute of Art's Cores + Connections CIA's academic commitment to student engagement in community-based learning, real-world projects, and social practices. For more info., visit http://www.cia.edu/academics/curriculum/cores--connections.
