The journey of Nadi X is displayed through various artistic elements. The sheets of chiffon hang in the middle, reflecting the projected dots to illustrate the movement of Wearable X technology. On one wall, the journey is displayed through sketches made and different electronics and materials used. The facing wall is made up of deconstructed Nadi X leggings to create new art.
Our exhibition showcases the lifecycle of Nadi X. We encourage our community to send their Nadi X back to us when ready for a new pair. The returned leggings are then repurposed into art, as shown in our space in the Palazzo Mora. This is an important experiment in recycling electronics and clothing for art.
