Scientific Skin feat. Bare Conductive
exhibition in MAK DESIGN SPACE Vienna, Austria, until 12 January 2014
MAK Fashion Lab signifies the start of a new series that sounds-out the border realms of fashion, design, textile design, and new technologies as forms of applied arts. In collaboration with guest curator Sabine Seymour, who among other things is author of Fashionable Technology (2008), MAK investigates the interplay of art, science, and research based on smart textiles. The invited designers, artists, and experts fill the MAK DESIGN SPACE, a site that maintains a continuous laboratory character. Despite its experimental character, MAK Fashion Lab sees itself as an impulse generator for industrial design and production processes, and associates concretely with the textile and technology branches.
