Ying Gao is a Montreal-based fashion designer who uses electronic devices to create robotic clothing out of silicone, glass, and organza. While working as an engineering/design intern, I contributed to the public installation, STILL LIFE – UNE CERTAINE NATURE, and the interactive clothing, POSSIBLE TOMORROWS.
POSSIBLE TOMORROWS consisted of two interactive garments. I digitally rendered 3D models of garment components in SketchUp and assembled motors and electronics onto the garments. I also designed an Arduino shield in EAGLE.
Still Life– Une Certaine Nature
For this interactive public art piece, I prototyped a fan mechanism that moved fabric through the air and assembled the final display.
During my internship, Ying gave me the freedom to explore my own designs with unusual materials. Here I created Palauan Breeze, inspired by underwater sea life.
