June 29 – August 10 CODED_COUTURE
Oklahoma Contemporary, Oklahoma City
Info: The CODED_COUTURE exhibition looks at the intersection of fashion and technology. Couture clothes are manufactured to a customer’s specific requirements. CODED_COUTURE offers a new definition of couture, using computer coding as the ultimate design tool for customizing clothing and accessories. The clothing in this exhibition can act as a lie detector, shift according to the viewer’s gaze and interact with social media such as Twitter. Works engage biological, cultural, psychological and synergistic themes to create highly individualized fashion shaped by technology and the viewers input. Experience the exhibit that weaves the wires of technology
with the fibers of fabric and discover the possibilities of Coded_Couture.
