WhiteFeather Hunter and Théo Chauvirey’s Bucci was on display at the McCord Museum Thursday evening as a part of their Fashion Tech event.
Fashion Tech of the Future: Biotextiles, Smart, and Evolutive Textiles highlighted research-creation projects taking place at Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology at Concordia University. Bucci shared the exhibition space with work from the Textiles and Materiality research cluster and matralab. Videos about the projects were also on display at the museum including Théo Chauvirey’s new documentary, Beauty and the Booch.
“Be inspired by possible futures for the ways that Fashion Tech will enhance textiles and clothing, shape the world of sport and wellness, and transform the way we interact with one another and with the world. These four Fashion Tech research-creation projects, curated by Joanna Berzowska, were designed and implemented through collaborations across different research clusters and research labs.
- what if you could grow bio-organic textiles in a science lab?
- what if your clothes could generate electricity to power your mobile devices?
- what if your clothes could vibrate on your body to send you messages and give you massages?
- what if your clothes could infinitely change colour and shape?”
