Our consciousness creates our reality through our senses, which constructs the world as we know it. With the coming of the technological revolution, we’re changing the very nature of the way that we experience the world. This collection focuses on challenging the default of how we interact with our possessions, and attempts to integrate three or more senses to create an experience in using our products. Focusing on the mechanism of deployable structures, I aim to create a range of interactive fashion products with the ability to change shape and size, which can be controlled by the wearer. Using resin as the primary material, I also want to capture the way that we can interact with light through these objects. This collection generates a harmony of interaction that results in an elevated sensory experience.
