So the Voodoo Dress is a growing, wearable and participative textile installation questioning the subjects of privacy and individual vs. global identity in the age of social media.
What are we sharing and how does it affect us, if it does? Are our profiles online voodoo dolls of ourselves? our dresses? our shells? are we truly there? or could we recover them and use them to our own benefit? Ultimately, the Dress becomes this ONE collective and powerful mind that is the Internet but where individual identity, in my opinion, is fading away.
