Thorogood, Simon (2014) Couture Graphique: Beyond A Label. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
SoundWear works by linking certain aural attributes from a sequence of music, such as the amplitude or loudness, to a digital library of icons, forms, colours, shape masks and photographs.
The process starts with the personal, interpretational visualizations of particular pieces of music. These visual compositions are then subject to a process of software programming that animates them, so they evolve and change in real time as the music plays. The software thus decides what the music ‘looks like’ and projects specific icons from the system image library over a 3-D rotatable figure and determines their position/ location upon the body.
These visual compositions then become the basis of ideas for fashion and textile design (as well as being relevant to other forms of visual design) and can be paused, captured and enhanced and manipulated by the system interface to alter such things as positioning, stretching lines, changing scale, colour, adding or removing layers, creating surface texture or decoration and so on.
