A continuing exploration of human interaction in a body scale that focuses on transforming the individual experience into a collaborative connection through light.

The project is composed of a hand-sewn base garment with neoPixel strips embedded. A hand-sewn diffusing surface is attached to create a cloudy lighting effect. The lights are activated by data that is collected from a camera sensor that captures movements.

Intro to Wearable

Inspired by the project "Space between us vo.1" I did last year, I want to create a garment piece that not just uses light as a "cool effect" but an element that tells a story and foster a collaborative experience.

Concept Development & Proposal

I started the design by brainstorming what type of garment I wanted this piece to be, daily wear? or maybe avant-garde? From there I tried to explore different light effects through different materials and forms.
