Presentation Title:

  • Peau d’Âne: Where Wearables Meet Fairy Tales




  • This presentation looks at the development of a work entitled Peau d’Âne which coalesces fairy tales, three meteorologically modulated dresses and wearable technology. Inspired by the Charles Perrault fairy tale ‘Donkey Skin’, the aim of this project is to incarnate three ‘impossible’ dresses from the story in a material form. The dresses take on the unique and mutable characteristics of the sky, moon and sun, translating these natural qualities into real-time and location-specific actuated garments to be used in a performance context.
