Clothing that arranges the body (2006)

We carry our gadgets with us and become systems of sorts. Our bodies become storage boxes, showcases, and extensions of digital data we accumulate.

Project website >> Clothing that arranges the body

Clothing that arranges the body is a casual jacket that allows the wearer to connect the flow of electricity between devices scattered in pockets around their body. Through the acts of connecting, disconnecting and arranging the objects in different pockets the system becomes apparent while the user is forced to understand it and ultimately gains control over it.

Instead of regular plugs and plugholes the electrical current flows through magnetic fastenings originally intended for beading.
