The Holy Dress

The Holy Dress is a garment that punishes its wearer through an electric shock when a lie is told. The dress is a speculative design imagining what it would be like to wear electronically enhanced clothing to help you stick to your morals. Because it is too easy to lie to yourself, the dress will check on your lies for you. Although the dress punishes, wearing it is not a punishment, but rather a radical new way to train yourself to become a better person. In the Holy Dress technology takes over the function that religion used to have of helping us to live the right way.

Directing credits for this experimental piece go to Irina Alexiu and the cinematography was signed by the wonderful Cláudia Rocha. ShepherdTone provided camera and post production services including Sound Design, Mixing and Colour Grading.
