The 'Echo Coat' is the first in a series of wearable technological garments that activates female subjectivity through the idea of the 'Nomad.' Lacanian theory outlines language as coming from a common desirous and essential place for all of us. As a Nomad,
multi-lingual skills can prove to be priceless and augment flexibility in certain circumstances. The intent of the 'Echo Coat' is to create a garment that influences the definition of new dialogue and connect it to traversal paths. The aesthetic of the coat abstractly visualizes how acoustic may float across the textile. Embedded with speakers and technology by way of an iPod application called RJDJ, the coat incorporates the sound of her voice in real-time. This then is intertwined with the conversations and sounds in the environment around her and played through the speakers. Subsequently, the wearer can partake in what excites her most, a unique and personalized dialogue of spoken language and rhythmical sound collisions.
