Pen Nib Dress is a piece of wearable, fashion technology by Steven Tai and myself.
I worked with Steven to develop this piece and figure out how we could make gold, pen nib sequins shimmer on demand. We mounted the 795 pen nibs, on tiny motors, that were sewn onto the dress. These rows of pen nibs are animated to created a hypnotic shimmer of movement which changes over time, varying the tempo, pattern and the overall mood of the piece.
