What Will We Wear In The Future?

Inspired by reactive animal skin, Behnaz Farahi created a moving, seemingly living piece of clothing titled "Caress of the Gaze." The garment consists of shifting spikes that bristle when a front-mounted camera detects the gaze of another person. The project is an artistic interpretation of an autonomic response, such as goosebumps or the raising of a threatened porcupine's quills. By showcasing such a dynamic piece, Farahi hopes to encourage people to "rethink the relationship between our bodies and the surrounding environment."
