A collaborative development of an artistic responsive fashion collection
The process of making Immediate Invisible is described from the point of view of the artist and expert’scollaboration, by presenting e.g. selected materials, technology and sound, and how they affected one anotherwhen merged to create the outcome: ‘a hearing device for the body’. Exquisite Corpse by Friswell (2010), isused as a metaphor for the collaborative design method, where all disciplines had equal value in creating themodular and functional outcome. An examination of the tangible outcome is presented as the findings. Theneeds of different disciplines affected each other both as limitations and as artistic input. The project differsfrom other similar wearable projects with its modularity, and from conventional fashion due to the use ofresponsive sound as an inherent part of its aesthetics.
