is an illuminating dress that encodes time information. the panels periodically
reaarrange their illuminated pattern to express time to the wearer.
is through series of flashes and varieties of patterns that elroy can
express encoded information in a manner discernible to the wearer of
the garment but indiscernible to external viewers. the dress and its
wearer become engaged in an informative and personal relationhip. the
wearer can decode needed information from the dress, thus relying on
the dress as a means of assistance, as a personal information tool,
even as a companion.
others, however, do not share this same relationship because they are
oblivious to the personal information expressed by the dress to its
wearer. outside viewers engage in a visual relationship with the dress
as they become entertained by elroy's illuminating and dynamic patterns,
but the relationship is purely superficial.
