Project 3: Wearable Data Portraits

When human beings acquired language, we learned not just how to listen but how to speak. When we gained literacy, we learned not just how to read but how to write.
And as we move into an increasingly digital reality, we must learn not just how to use programs but how to make them.
Douglas Rushkoff, Program or Be Programmed

In this project you’ll write Processing code, producing a visualization of the data you’ve been collecting, then print and construct a wearable accessory.
We’ll photograph you (or your model) in a runway show critique on Tuesday, November 12.
