Intimacy Dress

Van Mensvoort
September 5th 2010

The Intimacy dress takes our notion personal space to a next level: the closer someone approaches, the more transparent the dress becomes. As such, the garment becomes a sort of second skin that allows the body to become an 'interface'. As the interaction is similar to known interfacial body functions like blushing, one can anticipate the interaction to function on an intuitive level.

The dress is comprised of a flexible e-foil, which becomes transparent when slightly powered. The project is being developed by Studio Roosegaarde in collaboration with V2 as an exploration of the relationship between intimacy and technology.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
