Tendrils: An Interactive Theaterical Costume

Tendrils—Kinetic Garment


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 I find 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.
