Technosensual-where fashion meets technology
THE HOLY DRESS
Melissa Coleman/Leonie Smelt, 2012
The holy dress punishes its wearer through an electric shock when a lie its told. By wearing the dress person chooses to become a martyr for truth. By speaking in the microphone and placing your hand on the external interface you can get an electric shock when the dress thinks you are lying, as it detects vocal stress.
LIKE LIVING ORGANISM
Local Androids, 2012
Like living organism; a breathing artificial skin garment with pulsing veins (air is pumped through the veins to simulate a pulse), the pulse increases when you approach and the neckpiece deflates on touch as sign of trust.

Bubelle conveys the emotional state of the person wearing the garment through 13 separate miniature projectors located between the layers of the garment. A series of biometric sensors collect data such as heart rate, respiration and galvanic skin response, and the emotional information is visualized by altering the intensity, shape and colors of light generated by the projectors.

A self painting dress , called PSEUDOMORPHS. This project consists of a neck brace and electronic back-piece which includes a sensory system. As soon as a visitor approaches, the dress starts to "bleed" ink. The process creates an image of flowing liquid that is organic and unpredictable.
Meg Grant/Anja Hertenberger, 2012
Each of the three dresses in the Lace Snesor Dress collection is embroidered with a different poem, sourced from an antique embody sampler.
The sensors are created from custom.made conductive lace and the harder they are pressed, the louder the poem will play.

This wearable instrument, plays with the principles of circuit bending. Twelve coils are incorporated into the dress, each of which is played by connecting them with one another through copper finger plates.
In this way new sounds are created.
The composition is a choreography for the fingers that slowly explore the dress.
Pauline van Dongen, 2010
The innovative technique of 3D printing gave Pauline the opportunity to translate the sculptural feel of the garments into a rigid form in polyamide. Resulting in a sculptural form with organic lines-the polyamide shoes give a futuristic look proved to be stable and wearable. In collaboratio with Dutch company Freedom of Creation.
