Clothes that Make Music, Change Color & Generally Lead a Glamorous Life of their Own
What much better way to kick off summer than with futuristic style? The MQ MuseumsQuartier Wien in Vienna will be showcasing electronic textiles and wearable technologies with built-in sensors and LEDs developed by “haute tech couturiers” in TECHNOSENSUAL: where style meets technology opening on June 14, 2012. Guests will be encouraged to interact with these cutting-edge new fabrications and innovations. “The interactive exhibition TECHNOSENSUAL is an excellent kickoff for the Summer of Style at the MQ, our complex-wide program dedicated to the different elements of style,” explains MuseumsQuartier Director Dr. Christian Strasser. “By way of lectures, performances and workshops, TECHNOSENSUAL proves that intelligent fashion has extended gone beyond getting just a vision of the future.”
Exhibition highlights include:
- Lucy McRae who uses herself as a “body architect” onto the surface of which everyday objects and space-age objets each transform into some thing significantly much more futuristically-shaped
- Maartje Dijkstra & Beorn Lebenstedt aka Newk will be presenting their efficiency project “Denzipfaden” (at appropriate: “Reflect Horridus” by Dijkstra)
- Ricardo O’Nascimento’s “Paparazzi Lover” flashes back at cameras
- artistes Bogomir Doringer & Rein Vollenga function with with ferrofluids which continuously take on new shapes below the influence of magnet
- a video by artist-in-residence Bart Hess allows the viewer to manage the behavior of a “mutated” individual (his “slime extravaganza” dubbed “Liquified” – at best – is based on his perform as a stylist for Lady Gaga)
- “Intimacy 2.” by Studio Roosegaarde is created of electrically conductive foils – depending on the way the wearer interacts with other individuals, the material becomes more or much less transparent, alternatively functioning to either conceal or reveal
- Ying Gao’s “Playtime” moves and lights up when approached, whilst other creations communicate with their atmosphere (Karina van Heck’s “Body Speaker” & MoNo’s “DareDroid2.0”) or modify color (Graham Smith’s “Morphogenic”)
