Bubbling Universes: FILE São Paulo 2017

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.

Quando a moda imita a vida

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. To create her clothes, the designer uses the 3D printer [digital manufacturing and laser cutting] in order to create something totally new. 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)

Artista transmídia Amy Karle utiliza corte a laser para criar “vestidos orgânicos”

A artista e designer transmídia Amy Karle utiliza a mente e o corpo como seu meio criativo. Trabalhando através de uma variedade de plataformas, a obra de Amy questiona o que significa ser humano através da criação de projetos que estão ao redor ou sobre o corpo. Amy Karle primeiramente desenhou à mão formas inspiradas no pulmão humano e outros elementos da natureza que depois foram ampliados no computador e adequados ao formato de seu corpo.
