Urban Armor is an artwork started by Kathleen McDermott, consisting of a series of playful electronic wearables which investigate the relationship between technology, the body, and personal and public space.
The goal of Urban Armor is to create an opportunity for viewers and participants to re-imagine their relationship with personal technology. How much do you know about the devices you use everyday? How much control do you have over their functions? In place of mass-produced, data-focused devices, the Urban Armor pieces are custom, customizable, and intervene in the physical world.
In the future, the project aims to collaborate with different women and women’s groups to help address their unique experiences of public space. Please contact
