I am inspired by how much technology is starting to be apart of our everyday life from checking our health to watching our weight or even monitoring our sleep progress. There are even report that have biohackers putting flat like disks under their skin to monitor their body's current condition (http://gizmodo.com/the-latest-trend-among-biohackers-is-implanting-led-lig-1741697381)
I wanted to make a dress that was following along the path that we have fully embraced technology with ourselves. There will be an arduino board hooked up to a heart beat monitor that will be over the model's heart actually reading the heart beat. From this, there will be light where the model's heart is and will light up with the heart. The light will then carry down through the dress in a vein like fashion. The same vein like pattern will be on the arms but they will be covered in skin liquid latex to give the illusion that the lights are under the skin. The face will be made up with fiber optic lights and with actual make up.
