kinetic garments

look what i found... Ying Gao's sound activated kinetic garments.  these creations fill me with questions: why would one  _need_ sound activated kinetic garments?
the project was built around the idea of uncertainty.  both garments are activated by the spectator's voice.  through the motion of the pins, the garments engage the spectator on a conversational level, which is filled with misunderstanding(s) and uncertainty.
oh, well then; why would anyone _want_ to engage in a conversation that was purposefully filled with misunderstanding and uncertainty?!...because it makes you feel the way the videos (below) make you feel.

*excuse me miss DON'T MOVE - i think there is something alive on your dress thing...
