The SleepingBagDress prototype, that Ana Rewakowicz developed during the Tension workshop at foam, is a multipurpose inflatable dress that through inflation can change and adapt to different situations and environments. You wear it as a dress in the day and inflate it to make yourself a sleeping bag when night has come. The artist's concept evolves around the idea of clothing as portable architecture and brings our individual needs to the basic, everyday experience of survival and "you never know WEAR?" situations.
One of her previous work is Uniblow Outfits , two inflatable outfits made from rubber latex and shoe-pumps. When the wearer walked around, the clothes inflated themselves.
