>ooh, ooh. i’ve been waiting for this to appear for some time.

martin mairinger won this year’s ars electronica next idea grant and residency, which niknak missed by a nose with his awesome honorable mention. the winning project entailed using RFID tags to record, trace, and document clothing as it traverses time and space. seems the goal is to infuse new meaning into personal objects, and to integrate clothing distribution into the enriched social network.

[i found out about this project in august, but there wasn’t any pretty website to go along with it.] but i just discovered it. voila.

i’ll take some time to read more about it and post additional thoughts here.
