KUKKIA AND VILKAS = "poetic extensions of the body"

via coolhunting … The Kukkia dress is decorated with three animated flowers that frame the neckline. The flowers are constructed out of felt and silk petals that provide relative rigidity and conceal the Nitinol wire stitched onto the back. When heated, the wire shrinks and pulls the petals together, closing the flower. As it cools down, the rigidity of the felt counteracts the shape of the wire, allowing the flower to open. And like this… technology, plasticity, fashion meets and creates a poetic extensions… I loved the concept!!… image of the video…

PS: every time that I try to watch something in the quicktime, my firefox disappears with everything ; ((
