This is a garment that relieves the symptoms associated with menstrual cramps in women. Heating pads are placed in the abdomen and shoulders to relieve dysmenorrhea and shoulder pain during menstruation. The close-fitting and breathable sportswear texture material makes the heating pad provide better insulation. We tried to cooperate with the heating material created by Loomia company, so as to provide the most suitable heating cloth for the human body with the thinnest heating material. The lighting on the back of the garment shows the woman's energy state.
This wearable project was Inspired by Victor&Rolf's “Bell Collection” fall 2000, This project set out to achieve the same effect their dress had on a body in motion, in a setting where there was no body to activate the bells.
Furthermore this dress aims to examine the relationship between
wearer – garment – gazer. How can a garment relay information about a wearers emotional state through sound even if their body is completely still.
The dress is a Chiffon evening dress with 250 jingle bells that are being vibrated using 8 motors activated by a heart shaped touch sensor.
Programed with different vibration patterns depending on the duration of activation of the sensor.
The different vibration pattern symbolize the range of emotions an individual might experience when receiving different amounts of attention. When does exciting flattery become uncomfortable?
Over the course of a couple of weeks, I made several pieces of bioplastic using gelatin, water, glycerin, food coloring, and activated charcoal. Using the bioplastic, I also made several copies of a small left hand using an existing mold. This is a small temporary installation using temporary materials.
This wearable device is a haptics-only watch powered by a small battery, and a Gema microcontroler. The case is 3D printed and holds the electronics inside. When a button is pushed, a haptics motor will vibrate in a pattern to tell the wearer the time in hours and minutes.
