Inflatables interested us, so that was an obvious choice.
We experimented with gluing and sealing plastic until we found
that under the positive inflation sewing was sufficient. It
also created interesting 'drawings' across our suits. Hairdryers
worked perfectly as fans - thanks AdLib.
We all work with sound, and found it to be a sufficient analogy
for emotions that are more difficult to track. We do have
plans for variations that monitor other body processes.
We liked the idea of a pair of suits in a symbiotic relationship,
so we created the self-contained FRONT. We are busy working
on FRONT 2, in which the suits are networked to each other
from separate, remote locations. Millefiore_Effect: taking
it to the next level... 2002.
