Ying Gao's light-up dresses are a telling way to discover if someone is watching you. The garments are delicately crafted with "photoluminescent thread," and use eye-tracking technology to emit light when someone's gaze is set upon the garment.

If you like to be in the spotlight, these light-up dresses are a definite way to reinforce that you are getting attention. These sci-fi dresses seem like they would be the perfect thing for performers with an avant-garde taste in clothing to wear on stage.

The two dresses are part of Gao's '(NO)WHERE (NOW)HERE' series and are representative of the artist's other experimental fashions that are responsive to their surroundings. This year, these garments will be shown at Shanghai's Museum of Contemporary Art and in 2014, at the Textile Museum of Canada.
