Original plan:

To make a dress based on the weather

New plan:

Make a dress based on breathing


With the original dress, I wasn’t a fan of how data viz-y the dress was looking.

I liked the idea of a mechanical dress, but I didn’t want it to just respond to stimulus, I wanted it more to look like a creature of its own.

With this new breathe dress, the only input is breathing, but the dress itself will be positioned in a metal cage-like space. The skirt of the dress will be attached in certain places using a fishing line thread reel system.

When the person inhales, the dress will float upward, and when the person exhales, it lowers, hence breathing.


I was more or less inspired by The Senster in how it was a dynamic machine that ran on a single input.
