KOBAKANT explore the use of wearable technology as a medium for commenting on the social and technological aspects of today's high-tech society. Conscious of wearability and questioning of functionality, we believe in the spirit of humoring technology and present our twisted criticism of the stereotypes it creates. For us technology exists to be hacked, DIYed and modified by everyone to fit our needs and desires. www.kobakant.at
