glo Skirt

The gloSkirt is a wearable technology garment design for Mary Jane Pennington of dance troupe gloATL. The team wanted to give her an experimental tool to challenger her own movement style and better engage audiences new to dance. A base layer of LEDs responds to resistive sensors embedded within layer of the skirt, causing the garment to ‘pulse’ and ‘breathe’ as the dancer crushes and separates with her movements.
