FACETED TUNIC

Over 500 wooden triangles make up a foreground hovering just above the wearer’s skin. Attached to the backs of several triangles are LED’s that project light onto the skin, which serves as a canvas to receive and reflect light. Located just below the right knee is a color sensor that manually takes readings and determines the color in which the LED’s illuminate. The light play casts the triangles as silhouettes and shifts attention from the garment itself to the skin beneath. The tunic itself exists in a single form but is capable of creating perceptions as unique as its conditions.
