Tornado Dress
with Meghan Price & Maryam Golshayan
The lining of the dress has been embroidered with conductive threads and electronic
components including
super bright white LEDs. Three small photocells have been embroidered to
the outside of the dress and detect the amount of ambient light. Depending on
the quantity of light that is sensed, different flashing patterns are triggered that
are reminiscent of lightning effects that can accompany severe weather situations.
