Exploring the effects of personal volume

Designers Einar, Castillñano and Anette Andersen, call their collective the Spatials. They collaborated on a project that explores private and personal spaces and how they are affected by our surroundings and emotions. In this exploration, the collar of the garment reacts to various sensor inputs that control the strings via air pumps. The response either hides or reveals the wearer while the strings consume more or less of the space surrounding her.

A similar project is Teresa Almeida's Space Dress, which provides personal space in public places that I wrote about last month. Check out the posting here.
