Piem Wirtz, project manager for Wearable Technology at V2_Lab, gives an insight into the various aspects V2_Lab gets involved in the field of wearables.
These include artist-in-residences, workshops, or the E-Textile Workspace meetings.
Piem points out some projects that were developed at V2_Lab, such as Intimacy, a series of e-fashion pieces by Daan Roosegaarde developed with designers Maartje Dijkstra and Anouk Wipprecht; the Sharewear project by Di Mainstone, Pseudomorphs Anouk Wipprecht, and Bravo from Media Vintage by Melissa Coleman.
