urbanhermes fashion display

urbanhermes.jpgan augmented messenger bag that aims to incorporate the expressive signals of electronic display into the material-based environment of physical fashion. the bag is able to change its dynamic display within the context of its social environment, providing versatile means for 'face-to-face signaling'.
the images are designed to be temporary: with each change-of-hands the image quality successively degrades. each image remembers its history, triggering any nearby ones if they share the same source. the goal of this wearable display is to accelerate the physical fashion cycle, facilitating more meaningful representions of self-identity. see also public fashion orchestra & illuminated clothing & wearable data architecture for similar concepts.
