After looking through Prof Galina’s book on textures and fabrics, I got inspired and did a sketch of my costume. I really like the look of burnt plastic meshed together so I decided to incorporate that element in my costume design.
On Thursday, I decided to work with the top Read more →
Electronics bought from SGBOTIC:
LilyPad Arduino 328 main board — microcontroller
LilyPad FTDI Basic– Connector to connect to power source
LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 — Proximity sensor(input)
Sealed addressable 1 meter long 5V RGB LED strip — Lights(output)
The pattern started as an oval skirt then it was folded at the front Read more →
To embark on our project on wearable technology, I went to buy cloths and electronics.
Choosing the necessary electronics
I had to choose between two types of lilypad main boards, one with USB port for charging and programming and another without the ports but with more holes. I decided to get the one with the ports so I don’t need to Read more →

A jellyfish has no ears or eyes or nose and no brain or heart! They do not even have a head. Their body is almost totally made of water and is soft having no bones at all. Jellyfish are invertebrate animals because they do not have a spine or backbone.

What is “touch” in the third space? How does it feel to “touch” without physically touching? How do our digital representations in the third space connect to our corporeal bodies during the “touch”? How has the “virtual embrace” transformed the way in which we engage in social media and digital communications?
To get better answers to these questions, we have Read more →
In my opinion, touch is a shock that can be comforting. When my skin brush across someone else’s, I feel an electric shock traveling up my nerves. This tingling sensation gives me goosebumps and a strong emotion of excitement. The tremors running through my body sounds like an alluring melody sang in high-pitch vocals.
At the same time, the tremor Read more →
‘Futuristic Fantasy’ was the underlying idea behind my narrative, thus the aesthetic I was for my look was futuristic, edgy yet at the same time elegant and delicate. This is to convey the fantastical beauty in the technology, the wonderment in the third space. To add on to the fantastical look, I might use embellishments. I designed two different pieces, with some experimental preliminary Read more →
Exploration – Thoughts on ‘Touch’
During my exposure to the subject of ‘Touch’, interacting with one another via the third space, I explored my thoughts regarding the topic.
Looking into virtual space made me realised how it was something that we take for granted. It is so integral in our everyday lives, yet we often do not observe how it affects us inside. Read more →
I intend to explore the feeling of contracting and expanding through the manipulation of digital space and costume textiles. Through the use of sound and video distortion, the feeling of contracting and expanding can be further amplified and appear to swallow the performer, giving an off-screen presence to technology. Through this piece, I hope to investigate how video technology can create Read more →
