Wearable light

What happens when fashion and light design collide?

Many designers tried different techniques to incorporate light in to a wearable light piece.

For example, this talented Korean knitwear designer - HyunJin Yun experimented with glow-in-the-dark yarn, metallic and transparent yarn for knitting and digital printing.

She is not a simple knitwear designer because she is focusing more on e-knitting design in home design. Through her works she bring us in to her exciting visual spectacle world.

Are you familiar with the dress that moves when you look at? It is hi-tech glow-in-the-dark outfit made from the world's lightest fabric and it responds to people's gaze.

The author is Montreal-based designer Ying Gao. She used sensory technology in her dresses and they are made from super-organza and sewn in glow-in-the-dark thread.

It’s not a first glowing dress at the Met gala, in 2016 Claire Danes wore glow-in-the dark dress by Zac Posen.

Somehow, we think that beauty and greatness of our Mother Nature is always out there in the open waiting for us to capture the perfect moments of her creativity...

But, we simply need to ask our selves is it only just our prejudice? What if this what we can see and what surround us, is only a small part of Mother Nature's power and magnificence ?

In his search for remarkable and stunning creations of Nature, artist Joseph Michael found and with long exposure captured almost unbelievable light forms hidden in limestone caves in the North Island.

Millions of years old formations in caves grew into perfect canvas for bioluminescence of the glowworms.

Glowworms (Arachnocampa luminosa), species endemic to New Zealand, emits light in both the larval stage and the imago stage. Whats's the most provoking in this scenes is unawareness of these living forms of how powerful and superb their "paintings" are.

Luckily, passionate artist Joseph Michael, combined his forward thinking approach and technical knowledge with his affection for unique and divine in the natural world, giving us a "peek through" his visions and Mother Nature's undeniable talents...
