SUBVERSION OF THE MALE GAZE

The male gaze is a feminist theory coined by Laura Mulvey. The male gaze is the idea of having the male interest in mind. It invokes sexual politics and women are often stripped of their dignity, compromising their sexuality to sate men. Mimosa is meant to give women a sense of empowerment, to have control of when to activate the piece and subvert the male gaze

DESIGN INSPIRATIONS

Most of my inspiration derived from nature, specifically reptiles or birds that has a certain reaction when they are either protecting themselves or attracting the opposite gender of their own species. There are so much to learn from observing nature and how they behave, the natural system that they have on their own is exquisite and unique that replicating them and putting it into physical computing may seem hard to have a smooth effect. I also looked at fashionable wears that already exists, deciphering the designer intent on creating their piece makes it interesting to pen down my own thoughts and directions.
