Fashion & Technology: DE/MATERIALIZE
The Bachelor Program Fashion & Technology at the University of Art and Design Linz presents DE/MATERIALIZE, an unconventional fashion show in which fibers, tissue and bodies de/materialize between real and virtual space.
Industrial robots appear as models in stereoscopic selfie videos, garments from desert plants continue to grow, a fluid cocktail of glycerin and gelatin
materializes as a bioplastic suit, and gigapixel images open up the microscopic depths of the tissues.
The focus of the presentation is research with innovative materials and alternative manufacturing processes.
