Abstract [en]

The dress is a part of constructing and defining our identity. As a form of visual communication, clothing is a powerful means of making statements. Currently, fashion design products are developed based on the transmission of an image, referred to as a ‘culture-screen’, which makes the interaction process focused on the visual experience. Although sound, touch, and smell are elements of clothing, the visual sense is predominant in fashion and fashion education, and fashion is essentially understood as a system of visual components. As an alternative to this dominant focus on visuality, fashion could be explored as a sound-based interaction between the body and dress. The existing study of sound ontology in fashion is limited; thus, it is a largely new and interesting territory to be potentially explored. What is a sonic identity in the field of fashion? My research Aesthetics of the Invisible: Toward a Sonic Fashion Ontology is widening the notion of what aesthetics is by developing a new direction for fashion design on non-visual aesthetics based on sonic expressions. The sound is considered as a design-thinking material and an alternative, experimental way of defining a form for a silhouette. The sound installation Noisy Bodies is a part of the research practice–Sonic Fashion Library. The Noisy Bodies consist of 40 selected sound records of clothing, shoes, and accessory. The audience is invited to explore an acoustic dimension of fashion by listening to this sonic collage.
