Wearable Absence is an interactive garment that functions as an interface for a database of digital memories. Through the use of wireless technology and bio-sensors, users of the garment are able to retrieve archived information from an “absent” person’s life via a mobile application. What’s interesting about this project is that the user has no real control of when and how they receive these digital memories. The flow of information is unconsciously triggered by bio-sensors that monitor the physical state of the wearer. You can watch a video of the project at subTela or Wearable Absence site. The project was a collaboration between Barbara Layne, the Director of Studio subTela at Hexagram-Concordia in Montreal and Janis Jefferies, Artistic Director of the Digital Studios at Goldsmiths College in London.
