The concept of enchanted objects is seated deeply within folklore and permeates through most cultures. Its modern rendition is often traced to Arthur C. Clarke, who famously proclaimed in his third law that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". In the recent years, the idea of enchanting ordinary objects through technology was explored by the number of artists, researchers and product designers. They were most recently presented in a fascinating read by David Rose, called Enchanted Objects: Design, Human Desire, and the Internet of Things.
ENCHANTED WEARABLES are conceived by Yulia, who is a practicing artisan, designer and researcher in Human-Computer Interaction at Queen Mary University of London. The idea stemmed when her traditional practice in jewelry and textiles was combined with her interest in relationships, mediated through technology and wearable devices.
