I used both old and new materials as well as methods to create my kimono in the traditional form. Applying the same design concetp from the previous version of the We Are What We Wear Serise, in this version, the image of the urgan landscape was constructed with current technolgies of LEDs which were programmed and animated to dipict freeway scenes.
