I created "We Are What We Wear Series” through the integration of materials and techniques
from both old and new. I thus transformed the typical form of the kimonos through the sensory data of a new technological environment, creating contemporary, electronically embodied kimonos. LEDs are programmed with Arduino to show 3 different traffic conditions which last about 10 minutes total.
