Jennifer Dunlop Fletcher: “Wearables: Helpful or Harmful”
Starting by reviewing two recent exhibitions Jennifer Dunlop Fletcher curated at SFMOMA- Far Out: Suits, Habs and Labs (2019) and Designed in California (2018), that include a trajectory of wearables from the spacesuit to personal health monitors- this presentation will also include newer wearables which dictate behavior and define well-being and will be followed by a conversation on who benefits from wearables, biodesign and neuroaesthetics.
