FILE SÃO PAULO 2017: Bubbling Universes
July 17 to September 3rd, 2017
Sesi-SP FIESP, São Paulo, Brazil

Installations: Amy Karle – Internal Collection
Switching up conventions about the body and beauty, the selections from her “Internal Collection” showing at FILE represent internal anatomy in external wearable form. Merging anatomy, fashion, and technology, each piece is created by hand and digital manufacturing technologies. By depicting designs inspired by anatomy, this work communicates that, when we share our likeness and what is going on inside of us, an opportunity is offered for finding beauty within ourselves and connection with others.

Alternando convenções sobre o corpo e a beleza, as seleções da “Internal Collection” (Coleção Interna) mostradas no FILE representam a anatomia interna em forma vestível externa. Fundindo anatomia, moda e tecnologia, cada peça é criada à mão e com tecnologias de fabricação digital. Ao retratar designs inspirados pela anatomia, esta obra comunica que, quando compartilhamos nossa semelhança e o que está acontecendo dentro de nós, uma oportunidade é oferecida para encontrar a beleza dentro de nós mesmos e a conexão com os outros.
