"A collaboration between fashiontech designer Anouk Wipprecht [NL] and technologist Aduen Darriba [NL]. The dress is a wireless and wearable tangible couture "smoke screen" imbued with the ability to suddenly visually obliterate itself through the excretion of a cloud of smoke. Ambient clouds of smoke are created when the dress detects a visitor approaching, thus camouflaging itself within it's own materiality. The "SMOKE DRESS," with its loose net of metallic threads and electrical wire, works at the scale of the magical illusionists trick, permitting a hypothetical magician's assistant to perform her own disappearing act" // written by Valerie Lamontagne for fashioningtech.com

A wearable [550 gram] and wireless system which triggers the attention by flirting through cute blinks and sparks, but covers itself in a thick layer of smoke as soon as you approach - leaving the body undetectable. Operated by a custom micro controller based battery driven sensory system on the back of the design calculating and sampling the girl's personal space and sending data to the tiny smoke generator between the shoulders, this system runs up to 4 hours prior to battery exchange. Functioning as protection shield, projected as parasitic instrument hosted on the body it creates organic sculpted borders and communicates a non verbal 'fuck off' sign. Set up from an interaction set of mind to explore the boundaries of personal space vs animalistic behavior / territorial drifts.
