Reason for Award

This work increases our awareness of muscles that we are otherwise unconscious of using; a pleasant feeling of being massaged awakens our senses. Its cyber and stylish look, which could be mistaken for a security or restriction suit, has a beauty that induces in the people wearing it a feeling of unreality. Mankind has long sought to increase the functions of his body and it could be said that science and technology has developed for that purpose; this series of work has an inventive and experimental atmosphere that reminds us of this.
