Skin Temps

hologram_representation_large_verge_medium_landscape

When checking for a fever, we innately feel someone’s forehead for heat. This is because the skin’s temp gives a great read on what’s going on with the rest of the body, saying “something very meaningful about your physiological status and health.” To measure that  – a research team at the University of Illinois has developed an electronic tattoo, which attaches to the skin and accurately reads changes in temp. The gold wire electronic stamp attaches to the skin with water, and has embedded sensors that watch how heat flows through the bloodstream.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

books

There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.

 

Oh yes, the planet is sublime!

I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
cups,
rings,
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
also
the
infinite-
ly
small–
thimbles,
spurs,
plates,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
