World 171, Exploration A

Pencil sketch of adaptable clothing.

In World 171, where majority of people lack the social abilities, we need to express ourselves through our clothes and accessories, so actually we do not just wear them. Since we are at home most of the time, clothes and objects at home gain different meanings and functions, they do not just stand on people but they are with people. Hence, they do not just appear but they interact.

Clothes are less but flexible in this world. In these visuals you can see the same cloth that is worn is hung on the lighting product as a shader.

In this world, if your clothes are just worn it is considered as a shame. Thus, while designing a cloth, designers should also consider its other uses since different clothing materials create different opportunities.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
