Computational Costume v0

Computational Costume v0 is a speculative design set in a perfect augmented reality. The work shows how the ability to superimpose visuals with augmented reality on the body would be advantageous for replacing the screen-based devices we depend on today, such as smartphones and desktop computers.

Each half of the mannequin shows a costume for work and personal life. These costumes intend to capture virtual information in a way that is easily accessible by being attached to wearer's physical actions and an easily visible virtual identity. The work proposes an alternative to burrying information within a screen.

The work was first shown at No Vacancy Gallery QV in Melbourne, Australia as part of the Melbourne FashionTech collective's showcase during White Night 2018.
