Interactive clothing with fingerprint recognition technology, that acknowledges only strangers

The two robotised garments are connected to a fingerprint recognition system. However, through bypassing the notion of security, they only become animated in the presence of strangers whose fingerprints aren’t recognised by the scanner.
The aesthetic and motion of these garments evoke hypotrochoids, shapes borrowed from the vintage game Spirograph: their flattened curves are drawn by a single point linked to a mobile circle that rolls without sliding, on and inside of an initial circle. This design was developed from a series of algorithms linked to the realm of pattern recognition, or scatter graph.
