The Intimacy dress takes our notion personal space to a next level: the closer someone approaches, the more transparent the dress becomes. As such, the garment becomes a sort of second skin that allows the body to become an ‘interface’. As the interaction is similar to known interfacial body functions like blushing, one can anticipate the interaction to function on an intuitive level.
The dress is comprised of a flexible e-foil, which becomes transparent when slightly powered. The project is being developed by Studio Roosegaarde in collaboration with V2_ as an exploration of the relationship between intimacy and technology.
