CLICK@MoMA: Wearable Technology!

Diana Eng introduces the concept of illuminated fashion

This season, as part of our third CLICK@MoMA digital technology course for teens, we teamed up with the amazing crew over at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center to collaborate on a course that blends cutting-edge technology, beautiful fashion, and MoMA’s collection of incredible artwork into one amazing set of workshops. The teens, under the guidance of Diana Eng, have been hard at work getting their final, technology-based designs ready for another In the Making first: a teen-created, teen-modeled fashion show! Below, Diana shares her thoughts on one of the class’s first successful experiments.
