Soma Poiesis is research project which demonstrates that fashion is not only what we see on others. Within this research, an innovative approach was developed using fashion design, sensory materials and digital video to observe bodily movements associated with wearing clothing. Results showed that wearers enact a wide range of micro-gestural movements that assist them in maintaining a sense of comfort or poise. These adaptive movements, which are largely invisible under unmediated perception, show that there is much more to fashion that meets the eye. Soma Poiesis was exhibited in UTS gallery in the form of an immersive video installation in 2017, and the results of the research were presented at Fashion studies: An International View, a UTS symposium with an audience of leading fashion scholars and theorists in 2018.
