Textiles – Exploratory

This exploring and experiemnting project that I did for FabAcademy’s Wildcard Week Assignment is a journey through different materials, techniques, and processes.

1- Sleeves:

A demonstration of a technique to 3D print on fabric, using several heated layers of the bodies before adding the fabric to create 3D sleeves.

2- Top:

Non-stitched faux leather top, inspired by the geometric Islamic art. These modules are produced using a laser-cutter.

3- Bottom:

The bottom to this outfit was a laser cut acrylic skirt. The solid sheet became flexible by adding living hinges. It also contained a thread painted with thermochromic paint, when attached to an electrical source, the paint changes color from black to white.

Interested in replicating these pieces or the techniques behind them? learn more HERE.
