This Is the Most Unusual Maillot You Will Ever See #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #art

As a fan of the French language, I am not only enchanted by the title of this wearable, but also its art. Maille Eau by artist Geneviève Favre Petroff is a twist on maillot, translating to “water mesh” which is a wonderful description of this piece. The woven aquarium style tubing allows water to circulate around the outside of a body, much like the cooling liners for NASA spacesuits. Here’s the artist’s description of the work:

This swimsuit is made of transparent woven and assembled pipes. Water circulates through it at different rhythms. It is like a living organism, particles inhabit its nets. This animated sculpture puts us face to our own tingling, our gurgling and variable body flows. It deals with innovations in the field of textiles, in connection with water and biology. Its shape refers both to science fiction and to the seaside fashion of the 1930s.

Although this piece is an installation, Geneviève is often known for combining performance with tech. Be sure to check out her other work including LED and El Wire pieces.
