Celebrate the launch of Sabine Seymour's new book Functional Aesthetics at Eyebeam. Functional Aesthetics, the sequel to Seymour’s highly acclaimed book Fashionable Technology (Springer 2008), explores state-of-the-art artistic and design examples with a focus on their aesthetic and functional aspects. Chapters such as Context as Prerequisite, Body Sculpture, or Transparent Sustainability provide in-depth studies of visionary projects between the poles of fashion, design, technology, and sciences, which could stimulate new developments in the blossoming field of Fashionable Technology. The book also includes relevant information on DIY resources, publications, inspirations, and much more.

What happens when we use a brand's code to distribute our own message?

Activist group GAIA will be collaborating with Hacking Couture in this workshop.

Hacking Couture is a platform for launching new fashion creations through an open source approach of reverse engineering fashion brands and making the code available online. Hands on workshops encourage participants to create using the codes regardless of their level of fashion knowledge, and to engage in the larger fashion conversation. By understanding the coding of established fashion, this project provides a platform to empower participants to step up and create.

Led by Brooklyn based designer Charlotte Gaspard, Creative Director of C.Spot Designs.

What is sustainable fashion? Why are design codes important? How do we decode them? Curator Sarah Scaturro and interaction designer Giana González will use these questions as a starting point to work with participants to explore how the code for the sustainable fashion movement can be decoded and reassembled.
