- Stephen Thompson, Semi-Infinite Bodies: Towards a Critical Language of the Unapparent.This paper explores some of the implications of the term 'wearable technology. The author argues that the notion of wearability betrays a materialistic view of technology which may not be helpful for designers to find the means of fully facilitating the functionality of technology. It is argued that by taking the view that technology can be considered an extensive form of humanity a space can be opened for designers to explore how the body can be considered as an architecture for (...)No categories
