Data visualization fascinates me, too. People hooked up to wearables sometimes use it as an interesting way to combine garments and illustrative parts or schematic elements used in visual representation of data. It’s an open and creative field for last few years, but basically very old visual technique. It’s almost old as the history of cartography…
Jonathan Wood’s wearable installation Suspension Dimension is an example how you can make an actual object that looks like 3D spacey data visualization… Suspension Dimension was awarded in 2008 at the awe-inspiring Montana World of WearableArt™ Awards Show in Wellington, New Zealand.

While I was diggin’ through the archives of the Montana Supreme World of Wearable Art Award, I’ve found really nice discovery… Second Skin (2009) by Hayley May and Fiona Christie from Wellington, New Zealand.
I’ve managed to find on the web only three pictures of this interesting wearable sculpture… and here is the whole story behind the project, covered by New Zealand’s fair&blog Craft 2.0.

Another wearable sculpture gallery! This time I’ve picked up Patrick Veillet‘s skeleton, bony and awesome accessories…
Patrick Veillet’s fashion style evokes different underground worlds, which I thought belong to the realms of cinematography and literature… nakedness treated as clothing, clothing treated as micro powerful installation…

Yeah, I know… this might sound a little bit awkward to post a robotic installation into section that deals with body… but this is such a poetic idea to design a Tree Ceremony performed by a robot… It’s Kirsty Boyle‘s robot installation for recently ended exhibition Robot Dreams at Museum Tinguely in Basel.
oh… cherry tree…
