A global festival of art on the edge

Awareables: Conscious Clothing

Awareables: Conscious Clothing features artists whose works were featured in the SIGGRAPH fashion show Unravel. Barbara Layne and Diane Morin’s LED-laden jackets communicate with and respond to their environment. Daniela K. Rosner and Kimiko Ryokai’s dress knitted of videotape that itself tells the story of the knitter’s journey, and  a video of Helen Storey, Tony Ryan and Trish Belford’s disappearing dress – a dress constructed of a water soluble polymer which, when dissolved, turns into a liquid gel which can be reconstituted into a solid once more or used to grow plants.
