Matter that Moves: An Exhibition of 3D-Printed Fashion
RSVP is now closed. Limited admittance at the door.
On Friday, September 12, Eyebeam and Shapeways proudly present an exciting new collection of 3D-printed fashion garments. These pieces were produced by ten fashion designers, engineers, and media artists from across North America and Asia that came together in July 2014 to learn tech skills and collaboratively design work at the intersection of fashion and emerging technology! The exhibition takes place at Hotel Particulier in Manhattan, NY and is sponsored by CNL Mannequins and Joseph Cady.
The four exhibited garments were developed by the multidisciplinary design teams using a combination of 3D print manufacturing and traditional fashion design techniques. Each piece functions as an extension or augmentation of the body, exploring concepts such as fashion as a "second skin," as well as responsive and kinetic structures that can change shape based on the body or environmental conditions.
The Computational Fashion Master Class was a ten-day intensive co-organized by Eyebeam and Shapeways. The class was hosted by NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, and supported in part by The Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, CNL Mannequins, and Formlabs.
The class was taught by a group of leading designers from fashion, architecture, industrial design, and digital art, including Casey Rehm, Bradley Rothenberg, Lauren Slowik, Lisa Kori Chung, Ryan Kittleson, Arthur Young-Spivey, Gabi Asfour, and Sabine Seymour.
