3D printed outfit that responds to gaze of another from Behnaz Farahi

—————————————————————————————————-

Behnaz Farahi an architect and designer has created a 3D printed outfit that can recognize a gaze of a person looking at the outfit and can respond to the gaze.  This work was created as part of the Pier 9, Artist in Residence Program of Autodesk (http://www.autodesk.com/artist-in-residence/home.)  The 3D printed wearable uses a camera to detect the gaze of a person and changes its shape in response.

The Pier 9 Artists in Residence program gives artists an opportunity to work at digital fabrication workshops of Autodesk.  Artists receive funding and budget for supplies and publish their work on Instructables.com.
