Wearable Facade is an apparel that captures the colors and shapes of its environment through microcameras and translates them into computer generated patterns displayed on its LED surface.
Walking through the city, the Wearable Facade can reflect surrounding architecture or “replay” patterns recorded in different areas.
The architecture is the source of the information that composes the pattern, and it is at the same time vehicle of connection between itself and the garment.
Wearable Facade takes its inspiration from the increasingly numerous "media facades" that appear in cities across the globe, those LED covered buildings that turn architecture into screens.
Wearable Facade appropriates the idea, and applies it to fashion design, into a smaller scaled, more mobile and accessible device.
