Bio Lux: The original function of clothing is to shield human from weather conditions. The garment designed for a pianist Jocelyn Ho flips this function inside out: it does not protect from the external environment but exposes and interacts with the internal physiology of her body. Sensors on the pianist’s body detect her heartbeat, movement, and energy to act as triggers between the music and the illuminated attire Nagasawa designed. By creating an interactive sartorial (wearable) art activated by bodily rhythms, the performing body becomes an augmented artwork which transforms the performance. This clothing, made from “woven” pulsating optical fiber creates a soulful journey between mind, body, and music. (from Synaesthesia Playground dossier)
