Stars Will Guide Us Home

Inspired by a trip I took to my mother’s homeland, the island of Taiwan, the handsome buildings and undulating waves translate into a mix of hard and soft in the outfit I have created.

Home is where the heart is. The LED lights on the palazzo trousers are connected to a pulse sensor. As to whether the lights glimmer like the stars in the night sky or flash like the lights in the club, it is ultimately up to the wearer’s heartbeat to decide.

Materials: Cotton, neoprene, mesh, black glass beads, conductive thread, LilyPad Arduino, LilyPad LED, pulse sensor
