VIBE project and colleagues in Fashion Tech Farm are working on a VIBE (Visions by Experience) project with several European partners.
We designed and made ten interactive garments targeted at young activists of Generation Z (18-24 years old). As you can see each garment has different design patterns and is made of particular textiles for conveying a coherent narrative to people and through the user who wears it. All the garments are equipped with interactive components, including an Arduino, speakers, vibrator motors, all connected with printed electronics.

From April 25 to May 1, 2022, an exhibition of those garments will take place at IDEAL, Carrer del Dr. Trueta, 196, 198, 08005 Barcelona. A visitor will wear one garment and walk around to explore the “goblin mode healing” space. They are immersed in the fantasy music composed by Neurodungeon. The garment plays a vibration pattern that echoes the rhythm of the music, thereby adding an additional sensory experience.

In the VIBE project focuses on mixed reality to create (virtual) clothing to inspire generation Z and their future and how they consume culture. The project is led by Elisava Research. is accompanied by two other creative companies, Magma Culture Paris and Nemorin Film&Video London. Together we created the Active Activism Act content.

VIBE, The future of curated culture consumption and experience, is developed with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
