Chrysalis Boom is a sequin like, light sequence cocoon.
The exoskeleton of luminescent fabric displays light patterns, colors, and communicates via a select Twitter feed. This garment is expandable and collapsible to expose or diffuse light and tweet messages for an intimate broadcast of a global media that is direct and near. sensoree.com/artifacts/chrysalisboom_tweet_cocoon/

We are used to controlling the world around us, to find the settings that suit us best. What if we had the same control over our senses? If we could adjust them in real time, what new experiences could this make possible?
Eidos delivers two pieces of experimental equipment that let you selectively enhance your hearing and vision by activating your hidden powers of perception.

Dissolving Self employs metaphoric data visualization, motion capture and wearable technology to harness the subtle movements of a contemporary dancer. I was curious to ask how new media technologies can be used to augment the experience of watching performative art. Much of the inspiration of this piece comes from Rumi's mystic poetry and the physical meditative ritual of Sufi whirling.
A gyroscope and a radio module (Xbee) worn by the dancer measure and transmit speed of rotation and a Microsoft Kinect captures lateral movement. These two sets of live data are fed into Processing, an open source software to create a responsive and metaphoric visualization that is projected over the dancer.
