In March 2015 I was thrilled to give a 20 minute presentation to the Toronto Wearables Meetup at OCAD University's Social Body Lab. I showed a collection of images and videos of stilt cultures from different times and places around the world. Through this, I pointed out the intersections of wearable tech, body augmentation and stilting, and I traced certain patterns in the history of stilting. The images and stories I found in my research are inspiring for me, as are the stilt theatres of today involving mechanical and technical elements with giant costumes and puppetry. Here is a broad look at stilting past and present, please enjoy!
