SYMBIOSISO: VOXEL ART FEATURE
APRIL 4 – 28, 2012
On April 4th 2012, tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE held an opening party in collaboration with Surface Magazine for the unveiling of SymbiosisO: Voxel, an interactive textile installation by technologists and media artists Eszter Ozsvald, Kart Ojavee, and Alex Dodge.
Dyed with thermochromic (heat activated) inks and combined with invisible embedded electronics, the textile installation was designed to change its color and create temporary patterns dependent on two different stimuli: the touch of a human hand that leaves a highlighted, momentary imprint on the fabric, or a mobile, web-based interface that allows spectators to design their own running animations on the textile.
Guests enjoyed customized mini choux by Lady M Confections, White Pike Whiskey cocktails, and music by DJ Keiichiro. Everyone had the opportunity to enter a raffle to win an “O” watch by ISSEY MIYAKE.
