The CEC—comprised of New Mexico Highlands Media Arts faculty and students, members of the fashion team: Taos Runway Vigilantes, and high school students from the Taos and Las Vegas STEMarts workshops—will discuss the process of creating technologically infused garments that change colors and respond to sound and light.

Corpus Electric is a tech-fashion collaboration between Media Arts students from New
