In collaboration with Daijiro Mizuno from the Critical Design Lab at Kyoto University of Art & Design, STBY will be exhibiting results from the Belonging & Belongings project at the EPIC conference in Tokyo from 28 August to 1 September.
Belonging & Belongings is research project with a multi-disciplinary approach. It explores how people express their multiple identities using fashion and communication technologies. What makes people feel they belong to a certain group of people, and how do their belongings (physical and virtual, garments and media) express this belonging?
This project is an international and multi-disciplinary research, initiated by dr Daijiro Mizuno (Critical Design Lab at Kyoto University of Art and Design) and dr Geke van Dijk and dr Bas Raijmakers (STBY design research London/Amsterdam).
