manus x machina

This week at Paris fashion week, Iris van Herpen presented a collection of 3D dresses. She said that she focused “on the gaps in between the structures of my materials, rather than the structures themselves”. This made me think a lot about our black and white project and discussions about positive and negative space. The process that van Herpen described for making the finale dress (pictured) by first illustrating the design on a computer, then to be laser cut into 2D pieces, and then vacuum shaped into 3D molds (with a lot of complicated steps and time in between) also made me think a lot about the fusion between art and technology.
