STAY ALIVE IN 25! >> GROUP 3 >> CONNECT WITH TECHNOLOGY!
Frederick Janssen, Koen Rubingh and Jorge Coffie also believe technology and social media will play a large role in how our future will develop. They are worried that while people have to struggle more and more to make their ends meet, people might get more competitive in the future. But this primal idea of competition can really drive people apart, because; it’s the me-me-me-mentality that got our world in crisis in the first place. This needs to change, Frederick, Koen and Jorge believe. People need to work together, not against each other! Communication and technology will only continue to grow, but it can either distract and take the human race further apart, or the technologie can be a tool to ease the approach of people in reality. So they decided that their generation should be informed on how technology can be used to unite instead of com peat. Under their groupname the Tech Connector they explore ideas and example to regenerate our vision on connecting in public.
Fashion is on its own a very personal way to express your ideals, mood and style. Clothes make part of how you present yourself to others, wich partly influences how people may approach you and can sometimes even determine IF people would approach you. What your wearing can be the trigger for some people to be curious enough about you and/or feel like they share a common taste in fashion with you.
So that’s pretty much the basics.
BUT, how can we expose ourself more to the outside world?
We’ve found a designer Heather Brundage and her goal is “To explore the definition and purpose of modesty and privacy by visibly displaying the physiological signals projected by our skin, while still adhering to social acceptability in both modesty and fashion.” It may still need some work and is still at it’s early stage, we like the idea of permitting clothes to show a “deeper” connection to the person that’s wearing it. The colors literally react to you body temperature, similar to mood rings. And its curious to see how other people would react to that information once they see it. Maybe an original idea for new years eve!
