“Symbiosis” is the exploration of the symbiotic nature between anatomy and architecture through the lenses of “visible engineering” and tailoring. Distilled and presented through a series of proposed “future systems” of progressive digital tailoring/Virtual Reality showroom-runway presentations and multi-medium collaborations. An ongoing investigation into how during times of isolation, remote collaboration within the digital realm can continue to drive innovation and productivity.
The project examines how the long-established aesthetics of tailoring can be subverted by a sculptural-hyper engineered hand & digital approach. Challenging the notion of the traditional through the convergence of advanced digital technology and hyper modern materials.
This was achieved by networking into other digital worlds, disciplines and work flows:
Collaborating with parametric architects, virtual reality builders/coders and digital footwear developers.
This collective approach was undertaken with the aim of discovering how innovative parametric design, new digital design mediums and coding, cross over construction methods & unorthodox collaborations can offer “new codes” as to how fashion is produced and experienced.
