Magic Lining

Magic Lining is a collaborative project between an artist and scientists from the areas of human-computer interaction, psychology and neuroscience (MAGICSHOES). The prototype focuses on the possibilities for altering the perception people have of their own body through the garment’s inside. The project explores e-textiles to integrate sensory feedback close to the body. The work builds on the insights from scientific project MAGICSHOES and proposes a garment that allows the user to feel as if their body would be made of a different material. In this intersection of neuroscience research on mental body-representation, human-computer interaction and real-life smart textile applications. The project asks questions about the meaning of clothing.
