Sound Activated Kinetic Garments – Incertitudes


Montreal-based fashion designer Ying Gao presents two new kinetic garments, whose aesthetic details tessellate in reaction to sound. The ‘incertitudes’ series consists of white and silver colored fabric which have been covered in dressmaker pins, outwardly protruding from the textile’s facade. Through a collaboration of mediums and technologies — PVDF plastic, dressmaker pins, and electronic devices — The metallic accessories interact and respond to noise in their environment, activated through the spectator’s voice. Their fluent motion generates a wave-like flux, contracting and expanding the entire wearable object. The clothing’s original function is reappropriated and transposed into a unique aesthetic application.
