The Brief: My MSc thesis project, a speculative investigation of the future of social media and fashion technology. 6 month individual project.

QBee is a social media platform that collects quantified data about the users social life from their clothes and converts it to meaningless internet points. The final product was a working prototype dress feeding information in real time about its interactions with the public to an also functioning website. My aim was a dystopian look at how much information we are willing to give up about ourselves, my result was a lot of people telling me “Oh cool, I would totally use this“, so you can decide how successful I was. There is an accompanying 14,000 word essay you can read if you want (you don’t want).

You can find posts written as I worked on this project here.
