The Atari Women 8-bit Heroine Costume, a project created by HCDE students in the Atari Women research group, will be on exhibit at Hypnotica 2019: a DXARTS technological wearables fashion show. The Atari Women 8-bit Heroine Costume was among the critical design artifacts created in a Winter 2019 HCDE Directed Research Group, co-led by visiting Professor Pernille Bjørn and Assistant Professor Daniela Rosner. Students in the class used collaborative design processes to develop interactive artifacts that highlight the stories of Atari women, or the women who made crucial engineering contributions to early video games. Students Kellie Dunn, Carina Dempsey, and Melody Xu chose the language of cosplay to draw people into the story of Atari women – read more in the AtariWomen gallery.
