“As with with much of Wipprecht’s past work, the space of the body is once again transformed into a stage where the garment becomes the leading actor. “
Mechanically, this garment could easily be a hexapod kit halved and mounted on to shoulder braces, this being said the overall aesthetic is stunning. I love the way the robotics are designed to “insite curiosity” by swaying, and dancing eerily around the host but defend the wearers personal space if it is invaded. Anouk Wipprecht has an amazing portfolio of garments which span a massive range of technologies. My second favorite project has to be Intimacy2.0.
