Combining Art, Fashion and Technology to create a electronic textiles.
This garment takes inspiration from the peacock bird and plays on the term ‘peacocking' which describes dressing to attract attention. The garment will respond to an audience, just as an audience will respond to it.
By incorporating technology, the garment demands the audience's attention as it replicates the motion of the peacock's tail by opening and closing like a fan, and physically emerging as the title suggests.
The use of a proximity sensor provides a form of interactivity by allowing the nearby observers to activate the motion of the motor. This unanticipated action further enhancing the observer’s experience.
This garment was exhibited with other student work at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore.
