Art + Technology

Anouk Wipprect- Spider Dress

“If the person wearing the design is approached aggressively, than the limbs assume the attack position, but when approached in a calm manner, the limbs create smooth gestures and ease the closeness.”

I think the artist wanted to make a statement about body language and how it can make us feel, and how we react differently from it. It is also a tangible expression of boundaries.

Technology: Proximity Sensors
