Dressing for the future

I've been looking at a great site recently. Imagine a dress that could change over time. It would adapt to heat and to light, change colour or slogan according to your direction, perhaps also respond to more subjective stimuli, like hugs or baby stains?

Artist Joanna Berzowska has created a selection of dresses for herself, for the needs and aspirations of the next 23 years. Her project is one of six fascinating textile art projects to be found on the Digital Threads website.

Many thanks to Ken Vickerson for the link. You can see Ken's artworks here and Mr. Tacc's post about them here.
