Hussein Chalayan fashion show 2007. The clothes reconstruct themselves as the model stands still: hems move up and down, hats shrink, sleeves extend, patterns shift etc. He also works with furniture, led's and lasers to create dresses.

I've been having a lot of issues with the projects I've already proposed and have been working on a project inspired by Chalayan's collection: a noose that slowly tightens itself around the neck using clock mechanisms. I'm thinking of titling it "project deadline"


New Idea for final project:

Basically I'd like to construct a large twined circle structure out of fishing line and have a rear projection of the viewers movements in some sort of color blur video data

(icam, projector, fishing line)


sketch/notes for final project:

I'd like to use textile techniques to create sculptures out of EL wire. I'm hoping for the size of the sculptures to be about child size in reference to "when I grow up I want to be a-" (ballerina, astronaut, teacher, pilot etc) and how those dreams fade away or become replaced by something else. They will look deflated and slumped over but slightly glowing. as the viewer walks up to each one it begins to glow more steadily/brighter depending on how long the person stands in front of the sculpture. I'm wondering if I should make the "dream skins" inflate a little as if the person staring at them is "breathing life" back into the dreams. I'd like to make more than one so I might have to make them alot smaller than I want them to be.

I'll need EL wire and light sensors and some sort of inflating mechanism and motors if I decide to do that to the sculptures.

I don't know I have so many ideas for this class...it's hard to pick and even harder to figure out if any of them can work.

Daniel Rozin is an artist and teacher living in New York. His work centers around portraiture and mirroring and is based upon the point of view of the audience, whether they become translated into the work itself through video or the viewer is required to move around the work in order to see a shift within the stagnant piece. I think his most interesting kinetic sculptures are his Mechanical Mirrors.  They are composed of multiples of one material [wood, metal, mirror, marble balls, etc] and move to catch the light in response to the viewer's movement recorded by the camera that is inserted inside the "mirror" itself. It creates a pixilated grayscale image of the viewer through an unexpected medium. His work with the mechanical mirrors has led him to develop Software Mirrors wherein time is abstractly represented through ripples and blurs as the subject moves in front of the camera.
