In a world where the digital becomes more and more intertwined in our lives, we are still wary of technology and the digital life. We have a certain resistance when it comes to future scenarios. However, it is important to recognize that change is an inevitable part of life, and embracing the future can lead to new opportunities. In my project, I'm looking for a means to show that my view of the phygital future -a future that combines the digital and physical worlds- is not that scary and is not that far away. Within my project, I am exploring ways to make this phygital experience more tactile and interactive. Can we have an interactive experience with a digital creature? What does this digital creature look like and how does it live on our physical body? I created a interactive collection that combines physical design with digital/technological design, to create a unique and immersive experience. My collection pushes the boundaries of traditional design and showcases the potential of technology and fashion working together.
By using projection couture, I am making a phygital fashion collection that inspires people to look at fashion as something more than just clothes. It gives a glimpse of future design by using technology as a tool to create a new design method. My phygital collection is an innovative collection that combines projection mapping with technology integrated in to textiles. By using these new technologies, the collection transforms from traditional garments into living, breathing works of art that respond to the touch of the viewer. The collection is inspired by the idea of humans and digital lives coming together to create a transhuman collection. I used elements like veins, bones, and spines to create the illusion of these human aspects becoming more than just human. When looking at our bodies and our clothes as tools to create a new reality, a reality where we use technology and digitalization for a new way of living.
