As a kick-off event for collaborations with Central St. Martins, a symposium on ‘The Experiment’ was held in Hikarie in Shibuya, Tokyo. As part of the organizing team at Tokyo Tech, Tom was the overall MC, with students from the lab helping out on the door and during the event.
The symposium, in a full hall, was a great success with interesting talks given by extremely varied speakers across engineering, architecture and art and design. A report should be posted on the Tokyo Tech main website sometime soon.
This was the beginning of what should be exciting and innovative collaborations, part of a project on transdisciplinary approaches to wear and environment.
From October some further events are set to be held.
