digital sketchbook

An interactive installation combining fashion environment and experience. This installation comprised a reactive floor area which mimicked the catwalk fashion experience and allowed the visitor to affect changes to visual imagery. Multiple screens (55) surrounding the unit reacted to single or accumulated visitor actions. The imagery displayed a combination of mannequin graphics and text which were recombined or revealed to show the conceptual background of the garments’ development. Hyperhall ’98 (Copenhagen) was a Danish/British collaboration of works by young designers and artists working with fashion.
