Stir It On! – Wearable version
‘Stir It On!’ is an interactive wearable skirt that reacts to any close encounter on the surface of the skirt such as bumping or touching. The ‘Stir It On!’ skirt will have design patterns on the surface that will be emitting subtle lights when it’s stirred by near passing touch or rubs.‘Stir It On!’ was inspired by bioluminescent bay organisms called ‘Dinoflagellates’ that react with luminescent glow when they are stirred up.
In everyday lives, especially in crowded urban cities, many people pass you near or even touch or bump into you. This is especially true in Seoul, Korea. Depending on the wearer¹s perspective, this interactive reaction of ‘Stir It On!’ skirt can be expressing either alarming call to ask to stay away to give personal space or a playful request to be closer for even more touch. The multiple ‘Stir It On!’ skirts will behave more like Dinoflagellates when they activate each other.
