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.
