Spotty dresses, designed by artist and researcher Joey Berzowska, are made of light cotton, overprinted with thermochromic spots.
When one wearer touches another, the body heat affects the color of the spots. Touching, rubbing, pressing the fabric against their bodies or the bodies of others ,Aei makes the inks change color and disappear.
Spotty dresses are part of the "Touch Dress Series" which also features Feathery dresses, that have leds and touch pads.
What's nice is that there are three of each. Usually, these wearable garments are shown as one, in a gallery as one thing so you don,Aeot really interact with it. And more important they are also "wearable" in the sense that I wouldn't be embarrassed to go to the supermarket wearing one.
