Design Futures: Fashion, Body & The Mind at the Festival of Curiosity

The Festival of Curiosity

How long will we live? How is the latest research in science and technology allowing us design our bodies and minds?  Is biotechnology is going to give the design world the biggest set of new materials and tools it has ever had the opportunity to play with?

Join us for our lunchtime Design Futures Series at the Boy’s School at Smock Alley Theatre celebrating the Year of Irish Design 2015, hosted by Irish Times Journalist Claire O’Connell.

Speakers include Amy Congdon (Bio Fashion Designer & Artist, Involved with Biocouture and the organisation of the Biofabricate 2014) , Shane O’Mara (TCD Professor of Experimental Brain Research) and Shaun O’Boyle (Radio Producer and Research Coordinator, Science Gallery & TCD)

[I am going to talk a bit about wearables and how they interface (or not) with our fundamental psychobiology]
