[job] Cyborg Nation seeks Adventurous Designer (Wearable)

Cyborg Nation is seeking an adventurous designer who is experienced in working with unusual costuming and/or wearable technology.

Cyborg Nation, conceived by Clarinda Mac Low, a performance and installation artist, and Walter Polkosnik, a physicist, hacker and inventor, is built around a self-contained performance environment (SCoPE); miniature technologies built into a wearable, participatory media extravaganza. The SCoPE is a tool for creating performance dialogues anywhere, acting as a nexus for imagination and as an aid to impromptu philosophizing. The SCoPE allows one-to-one conversation to become a public display. With the SCoPE, performer(s) field and respond to phone calls, images, and email from participants on site and elsewhere.

We need a designer to work on creating a streamlined, elegant and functional version of the SCoPE.  This is a paid position. There have been several versions of Cyborg Nation since 2009, and we have a gallery show lined up for late March 2011.  We would like to meet with people ASAP.

Contact Clarinda at in interested or if you have any questions, and please pass this note on to interested friends and colleagues.

Cyborg Nation is currently supported by the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art.
