(No)where (Now)here Dresses Light Up and Move When You Look At Them

by Hazel Chua

Some dresses have designs that are so unusual that you can’t help but stare at them. These two dresses designed by Ying Gao in collaboration with robotics designer Simon Laroche definitely will draw attention.


These interactive pieces of clothing, titled (no)where (now)here are equipped with eye-tracking technology so that they literally come alive when someone’s looking at them. Tiny motors are activated to set off wave-like motions all over the dresses, while the photoluminescent thread gives the dresses a distinctive glow.

The design is complicated but beautiful, and the concept intriguing.

The artist’s statement reads: “A photograph is said to be ‘spoiled’ by blinking eyes – here however, the concept of presence and of disappearance are questioned, as the experience of chiaroscuro (clarity/obscurity) is achieved through an unfixed gaze.”
