Ninna Margret’s Dancing Dress
In this piece, Dancing Dress, Ninna Margret from Iceland has created what she calls Kinetic Fashion. The dress moves with robotics and imitates someone shaking their booty. As Margret describes the piece and her other projects,
“It started with my graduation project in 2006. I made a band and wanted to make costumes for them that would really stand out on stage, and that the costume would really be a show in itself. For my graduation I made The Hexagon Dress (that changes colours) and the Nr Dress, made in a 3D computer program and then printed out. From there I fell in love with the idea of making things interactive, or more alive and surprising.”
Currently, she’s working on a project with two dancers that involves sound, exciting! To see more of her work, click here.
