Virtual Appliqués is a site-specific data sculpture that imagines the future of fashion through a digital exploration of the symbiotic relationship of colors, fabrics, and techniques. The project utilizes contemporary algorithms, a special API that captures color patterns from social media photos as well as real-time information that provides the base for it’s “data-knitted” synthetic fabrics. Presented in four Chapters, Virtual Appliqués is inspired by the natural world and the unique architectural design of Beverly Center. Each chapter showcases a visual rendering of a future “fabric” that is weaved together by the Studio’s interpretation of material transformations, together forming a multi-faceted reflection of the nuanced relationship between technology, humanity, and culture.
