Hannah send me a link to the video below which painted a smile on my face while watching. Seeing David Hasslehoff on stage singing ‘I am locking for Freedom’ in an illuminated jacket is just what I needed to cheer up a bit while struggling with one of my projects.
Seeing D.H. performing in an illuminated jacket only contributed to my enjoyment – literally. Have wearable electronic in my DNA, the illuminated jacket got my full attention, much more than the song. I wonder who was the creator of this illuminated jacket as the performance was way back in 1989 at a time wearable electronic was hardly known to more than a very few people.
I can’t imagine Moritz Waldemeyer was involved in that project unless he did a student project. Interesting in any case as it confirms my ‘suspicion’ that performing artists are attracted towards light animated stage wear like moths to light.
I hope this little post can light up your day as it did for me. If you know who made this jacket, I would be grateful if you can share it in the comments.
