Living Accessories

An exploration into both 3D printing & programmable materials, Flexible Textile Structures are not only wardrobe accessories, but active structures that can adjust themselves when power is applied. One can be manipulated into any desired configuration & hold its shape even when force is released. The textile can be reshaped depending on the wearer’s aesthetic preference. The other reacts morphologically to changes in its surroundings, expanding & contracting to adapt to external forces. Essentially, it moves with the wearer, returning to its original shape when undisturbed.
