  2. Hekate was the Greek goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night and the moon. Being the goddess of the night, she considered this her favourite time of the day and it wasn’t uncommon to find her walking at night accompanied by dogs and spirits. Therefore her nickname became “Queen of the night”. As she wandered, people described her as luminous, becoming just a soft glowing light. She often carried two torches so in this wearable I have transformed the bra into these torches producing soft glowing light.

    I wanted to empower the user by giving the wearable a strong form. I created this by having a strong use of line, inspired by Greek Architecture. This strength encourages the performer to choreograph strong movements. When this happens in the dark, the activated lights can be seen, softening what once seemed so harsh.

    To physically create this wearable I have used cane, black paint, a bra, clear files, thread, white LED’s, ribbon, lily pad and accelerometer. The accelerometer tracks the movement of the performer to detect how fast they are moving and produces the light according to this movement. The padding and clear files help to distribute the light around to make the bra glow softly.
