"make up your mind" by Nick Knight_Maison Martin Margiela wig coat ss2009
One dress, which is seemingly soft and fluid, begins to change shape, thanks to an underlying motor mechanism, so that the resulting picture ends up blurry. The second dress has inbuilt lights, which causes overexposure when the camera’s flash goes off. The dresses are cleverly built with a structure of microprocessors, sensors, motors and lights hidden under the delicate fabric. The sensors pick up when a camera flashes to begin reacting. Gao tellsWired:
"When one attempts to capture an image of the dress, using a photo or video camera the garment transforms and fragments, it deconstructs and becomes soft and vague, unfocused.
Apropos for a time when we are becoming more concerned about privacy and surveillance, Gao’s dresses are not made for production but make a statement about the current socio-political climate.”
