Overview

Body Wearing Movement is an interdisciplinary applied research project integrating research and design techniques derived from interaction, data visualization, scenography, psychology, dance, and fashion

Process & Users

The project was developed through iterative interviews, rapid prototyping and user testing sessions with dancers, choreographers, pilates instructors, and physiotherapists.

Rails concept evolution

Design & User testing

The final collection includes 3 garments, was visualised in a video, when Cyborgs Dance, photographed in a live jam session without any additional external choreography.  

The design of the video was inspired by Oscar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet. It explores how  abstract movements (round, short, repetitive and long) - could be embedded into dress.
