Title: Future Matter [3FM001]
Date: 2012

 

Concept:
3FM001 are two retro ‘future’ cocktail dresses combining couture fabrication methods and high-tech engineering know how. These dresses are a combination of understated style, and cutting-edge technology.

 

Technology:
The designs have a series of embroidered LEDs (12) and a motion sensor, transforming the rhythm and illumination of the LEDs in tandem with the wearer’s movements.

 

Materials:
The dresses are made of hand-woven cotton fabric, digitally printed silk textiles, electronic hardware, and hand-embroidered hard & soft circuits. The designs can be bought as finished garments only. The electronics are coin cell battery operated.

 

Funding:
Canada Council for the Arts
Concordia University Part-Time Faculty Association
