MIA’s Lighted Dancers (video inside)

Enlighted created these illuminated costumes for M.I.A.'s performance on the main stage at the Coachella Music Festival back in 2009. The dancers' suits were outlined in multiple colors of electroluminescent wire, with an intentionally loose aesthetic that made them appear to be live dancing versions of a sketch. To see it in action, check out the video below!
