This is interesting…
Making 3D objects from 2D surfaces is something I keep coming back to – this is (in parts) going back the other way and making a 2D surface from something that starts as a 3D object.
from FashionNerd… a whole blog devoted to this stuff. I think textiles are kindof under-represented on the tech front. There’s a lot more we could be doing with them I think.
My Dad used to work with this kid who’s “thing” was to tie every single thing in a room to every other thing with long pieces of string. You’d leave him alone, come back and there would be all this string spanning the room… connecting everything and keeping everything in place. If you tried to move any of it he’d have a conniption.
The thing above is a similar sort of thing I think, except done by crazy people.
Ok – not a crazy person. Julie Sherman. Artist. Brilliant.,
This is cool, though I lack the competence to actually make shirts (or whatever) myself. They should hook up with an online shirt-making place.
Assuming you wanted a shirt of course.
The “no-minimum-run” is the thing though. This gives people the breathing space to experiment.
It seems that there’s an entire subculture based around knitting things and “dressing” objects like trees etc, that are just standing there, minding their own business.
and each of these blogs has links to others… the shear scale of this does my head in.
