Environment Dress 2.0, 2015

We are surrounded by polluting agents and other factors that have a direct impact on our everyday lives, our mood and, ultimately, on our behaviour.
Variations in noise, temperature, atmospheric pressure, ultraviolet radiation or amounts of carbon monoxide are some of the challenges we have to face daily basis. At the end of the day, they are agents that influence our temper and our behaviour with the others.
Environment Dress is a piece of smart clothing that uses a number of sensors to measure the aggressiveness of our surrounding environs, detected environmental variables and alerting us to them. Our body’s natural sensors are unable to measure and anticipate factors such as an increase in ultraviolet radiation, dust or noise, and others.
The interface geo-locates environmental analyses and allows users to register their mood through a smartphone app. In consequence, we can establish the relationship between both variables and determine whether an increase in ultraviolet radiation can make the person who wears the dress feel better or whether and increase in noise level can make him or her feel more uncomfortable in a certain place. Finally, all these data are shown on an emotional map, pinpointing the most pleasant and unpleasant areas in a city.

Environment Dress, 2015 >


Our work as art group brings together a collection of works and projects in which we study the interrelations and intersections that occur between machines and the human being.

We approach these issues in different kind of pieces: Interactive installations, sound interventions, multimedia pieces, etc. However, the support is not more than one channel that canalize the project itself.

A transversal and interdisciplinary research where the machine, far from a cold body, acts as an integrating factor, multiplying human capacities for equal us to other living beings or mechanical things already equipped with them.
