Once in a while there will be a great idea that cannot be brought alive by one. Here are a couple of project I have helped bring to life.
Once again at the Pier, what a crazy place.
I met Pierre and Johan early during their residence and immediately realized I could/wanted help. Towards the second half of their term we started working together and although my real contribution to this project cannot be shared yet, here is an industrial robot arm tattooing Pierre. I am behind some of the cameras.
I spent most of my summer in Paris working with them in a new prototype, the design and video should be published in the next couple of months. In the mean time:
Since, I have traveled twice back to Paris to continue the developement on the machine.
Caress of the Gaze- Behnaz Fahari
What if our outfit could recognize and respond to the gaze of the other? This is an interactive 3D printed wearable, which can detect other people’s gaze and respond accordingly with life-like behavior.
Our skin is constantly in motion. It expands, contracts and changes its shape based on various internal/ external stimuli including not only temperature and moisture but also feelings, such as fear, excitement and anger. What if our clothing could behave as an artificial skin capable of transforming its shape and operating as an interface with the world defining social issues such as intimacy, gender and even personal identities?
For this project I help with the physical computing part of the piece, interpreting the information captured by the tiny camera, and translating it into impulses for physical motion.
GOOGLE + ZAC POSEN LED DRESS
While at the pier I had the pleasure of helping Madison Maxey with a couple of her creations. One of the most resent went to the New York Fashion Week runway for Zac Posen and Google.
