Tendrils: An Interactive Theatrical Costume...

Designed by Thecla Schiphorst in collaboration with Jinsil Seo, Tendrils is an theatrical costume that commands to be touched. Squeeze the draping tentacle-like structures and the dress "shivers" in response causing the colorful petals or scales to subtly move. Actuated by a series of small, inter-connected motors and lights, the biological response " reflects the inner flow of the energetic nervous system of the garment." What we found unique and interesting about this project is that the garment can also be activated by "virtual" touch through touch-screen and mobile technology, taking the garment beyond the exhibition room and into virtual space.
