The first in the Urban Hacker series, Body Art showcases the design capability of a hacker approach and aesthetic. Using hacked technology from a variety of sources, Janak Alford has developed a process for body art which has the colour and detail exceeding what is possible with modern tattoos, but with immediate, painless, and temporary results. Shifting from image to fashion, body art becomes a form of immediate self-expression. One becomes able to hack their own identity.
prototypeD is an Urban Workshop in Ottawa Ontario. It offers members the capability, resources, and space they need to develop their own business and artistic models, and provides educational and technical assistance to developing hobbyists, professionals, and hackers.
