  • Joanna Maria Berzowska is Associate Professor of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montréal. She is the founder and research director of XS Labs, where her team develops innovative methods and applications in electronic textiles and responsive garments. Her work has been shown in the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Millenium Museum in Beijing, SIGGRAPH, ISEA, the Art Directors Club in New York, the Australian Museum in Sydney, NTT ICC in Tokyo, and the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, among others. She lectures internationally about electronic textiles and related social, cultural, aesthetic, and political issues.

    A core component of her research involves the development of enabling methods, materials, and technologies — in the form of soft electronic circuits and composite fibers — as well as the exploration of the expressive potential of soft reactive structures. She is the Head of Electronic Textiles at OMsignal, a Montreal startup developing a line of bio-sensing clothes together with a wellness application.
