I will share with you THE T/SHIRT ISSUE’s manifesto: “Our ultimate mission is to lift the hurdle between possible and impossible and redefine the aesthetics of all things jersey.” Inspiring, right? This interdisciplinary group design t-shirts and sweatshirts from the core on up, made with in-house software. They have developed a method to integrate polygonal geometries from 3D graphics programs into clothing design. The result? Astonishing as you can see in the images. For their second experiment, „Muybridge Pt_2“ (a nod to Eadward Muybridge’s photography work in the late 1800s) they started with a bird in full flight, doing a study on temporal change in 3D, then rigging, animating and exporting into t-shirts. The t-shirts represent three frozen frames from the animated flight, displaying a different position of the bird’s body during this motion. Technological couture meets basic wear, certainly a unique garment. More on their website.
If you are in New York, you are invited to see the t-shirts live at the “Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital” exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design. The opening is next Wednesday October 16th from 7-9pm. Until July 2014.
