Intimacy & Technology

Diana Adams at Bitrebels has written a interesting post asking if we all are becoming less inhibited as a result of technology.

As an example, Diana mentions the Intimacy 2.0 dress created by Studio Roosegaarde.

 

INTIMACY is a 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 garmentsʼ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure.

INTIMACY 2.0 features Studio Roosegaardeʼs new, wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils which are perfect to wear on the red carpet. In response to the heartbeat of each person, INTIMACY 2.0 becomes more or less transparent.
