2022-present (work in progress)
Envisioning biofashion in a post-natural world when our bodies and beings are altered by biotechnology, Artist Amy Karle created this unique collection of artworks made with AI tools, computer aided design, and by hand. This collection embodies and exemplifies this pivotal moment of Artificial Intelligence exploding into Art and Design, and into biotech. It questions who we could become through the modifications that these technologies bring with them, and dissolves boundaries of what physical and virtual life could be.
The 2D drawings are made with AI tools, computer aided design, and by hand and are artworks on their own. They also serve as the basis for the physical collection that further explores these concepts in the form of garments that fashionably integrate the body, med tech, digital applications, and virtual spaces like the metaverse. Combining digital fabrication and human-computer interfaces with traditional haute couture techniques, the 3D interactive and hybrid artworks are not just garments, but a glimpse into the possibilities of technology’s impact on fashion, our bodies, and our future selves.
