What if you could embed choreography into dress?
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.

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.
