Re-Making Patterns Opening

Re-Making Patterns Opening

117 Beekman Street, Manhattan, NY

September 10

For the final week of the Making Patterns exhibition at South Street Seaport's Culture District, Eyebeam and Shapeways present a new collection of 3D-printed fashion garments that emerged from this year's Computational Fashion Master Class. Come see this final addition to the show showcasing the most current advances in 3D-printed fashion design.

This year, Eyebeam and Shapeways brought together fifteen fashion designers, engineers, and media artists from across North America and Asia to build skills and collaboratively design at the intersection of fashion and technology. After a challenging and rigorous class taught by expert practitioners and artists in the fields of fashion, 3D modeling, and 3D printing, five groups of artists produced brand new pieces that break away from conventional dress in favor of conceiving garments and accessories that do not yet exist.

Combining traditional fashion techniques and emerging technologies, each piece functions as an extension or augmentation of the body, exploring concepts such as second skin, performative textiles, as well as responsive and kinetic structures.
