“INTIMACY is a high-tech fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black’ are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.
Social interactions determine the garments’ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure. ” — Studio Roosegaarde
Parts of the dress turn transparent when the wearer’s heart rate rises. It can render visible the wearer’s innermost thoughts. I find this project interesting because it explores several field – fashion, technology, social interactions, and human body. We tend to hide our excitement, tension and anger from others. We feel vulnerable when people knows our thought just like we are naked. The dress became a part of the wearer and contribute the most honest interaction with others.
