Bodily Interarticulations

AA School Paris, Spring/ Summer 2011

Within the framework of fashion, designers recognize the value of innovation and surprise in clothing designs and spectacle within seductive displays of retail to attract press, clientele and capital to continue this same endless process season after season.
Fashion scene today is not only a collection of captured images, but rather an ensemble of socio-morphological forces connecting people, catalyzing experimental, open-ended design. Fashion and its affinity for transformation is a complex terrain of architectural identities, scenery and performance. These dynamic spaces are the field where vanguard ideas incubate.

From right within fashion’s creative nexus Bodily Interarticulations will foster ‘integral spatial qualities’ by harnessing the surprising typolo¬gies intrinsic to temporal bodies, fluid matter(s), and singular proportions. On the edge of couture’s technologi¬cal transformation, we will rapid prototype templates that stage sharp, raw, urban, experimental and alien spatial apparel logics.
We will work towards a mutual understanding of various couture forms so that we can computationally adjust their spatial characteristics. On the edge of couture’s technological transformation, we will rapid prototype templates that stage sharp, raw, urban, experimental and alien spatial apparel logics.
