Coded Biophilia is a workshop designed to learn basics of soft wearables and the exploration of biological textiles. During the workshop, participants will explore the potential of bacterial cellulose for textile futures in terms of growing living materials and creating speculative scenarios for second skins, sensors, and adaptive responsive structures. Learning new methods of making sensory surfaces for wearables and to envision how biotechnology and new materials will shape our environment. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to identify state-of-the-art soft wearable and bio-textiles applications. Technology is getting closer and closer to our skin. What we wear today will soon be forgotten and replaced with biological technologies that are not only changing and challenging the way we consume and experience design and fashion, but also how we relate to and work with nature instead of against it. Through Coded Biophilia and within this space, we have the opportunity to re-think the relationship between technology, design and society.
