In this age of media we find ourselves communicating indirectly with one another. The different social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat allow us to communicate in a way that we can share information, photos and different interests and at the same time we can decide what we don’t want to expose or share, and thus edit and crop the information and eliminate what we others know about us.
I took inspiration from the different social network layouts and created a grid pattern that looks like the Instagram’s format. The jacket I created has to layers and works on a smart sensor that detects the amount of network packets (communication traffic) in the radius of several meters away creating movement in the different grid frames according to the amount of packets in the air.
I used navy wool fabric and nude wool crêpe for the jacket, and flex printed crepe for the dress.
