Inspired by a famous choreographer - Yin Mei’s wise words “I can create an architecture space using my joints, which is already telling a story”, Sense Move Costume is a geometrical kinetic sculpture folding following along with the movement of the body. It communicates sensitively through the body movements of the dancers, and enhances the emotional transmission between the dancer and the audience. The different light effects express the costume’s emotions by the pressure sensor; for instance, a slow fade is breathing, and a flash conveys excitement.
This design tells about the Great Silk Road, a unique social phenomenon when the East became acquainted with the West and both worlds were enriched with knowledge of each other.

Here you can see the rice terraces of China, and night in the Japanese garden, and patterns of wind on the sands in the desert, and feel the coolness of oases.
