Changes and revisions of the interaction and form
As we discussed further about the concept and meaning of the wearable piece, we decided to switch the role of the two interactions. Visual feedback will now become the supplements of the piece as the primary feedback will be the physical transformation. We were inspired by the possibility of a little flowery form. This fabric flower allows a change to its current form as the string that is holds it together got pulled and released. This change reminded us of contraction and relaxation and that work metaphorically as the representation of conflicts and struggles.
So the intensity of the movements of the wearer will be determined as conflict against self or others and that will cause the contraction of the flowery elements. The breathing of the wearer will then cause the intensity of the LED. This causes the dress to “breath” like a human.
