the man with the ribbon

Hiromi Murao (JP)

With a view to the connection between the virtual and the real, Hiromi Murao created a garment composed of parts placed on the body in 3D and connected to each other directly by a 3D printer on cloth.  In the man with a ribbon, even if the body size changes, the wearer can continue to wear the garment by replacing the parts. The 3D model used in the production process can be used virtually as an avatar. I believe that the human assertiveness will connect the virtual and the real and will be what makes a person human.
