This project, merging biotechnology with artistic expression, invites reflection on the legacy of humanity's biological and digital remnants, provoking contemplation on how future beings might interpret the echoes of our current existence. "...the installation’s more about provoking questions than providing answers. Questions about how the biological and digital remnants we leave behind “echo” ahead in time, for example, and how future societies could interpret these relics."

For Amy Karle, fashion offers the opportunity to change identity and the way they feel about ourselves. In making her recent dresses, she shows what is inside everyone that we all have in common: organs, bones, blood.

She explains that by learning about the digital manufacturing technologies, her brain went to work in a different way, making her have more innovative ideas than she would have if she were making clothes in the traditional way alone. (translated)
