BODYCROWNS: Poetic Models of Future Garments for Space Emigration
Eyebeam’s Computational Fashion Fellow Carrie Mae Rose, in collaboration with battery expert Dr. Dan Steingart, presents a series of illuminated wearable sculptures that integrate technology to visualize the movement of subtle electrical circulations around the physical body and how they interact with the breath and other unseen forces.
Between 2028 – 2045, ‘humanity begins the transition from a terrestrial to a solar species’ as articulated by the Rockwell Integrated Space Plan. As humanity begins to emigrate to space and live in enclosed space station environments, there are potentially devastating physical, psychological and spiritual changes that will take place. Inspired by the work of philosopher Rudolf Steiner and occultist Max Heindel, Rose’s series BODYCROWNS are physical explorations of the changes in the etheric body that will occur during the human transition to space.
Exhibition on view from October 8 – November 2, 2013
Main Event Reception: Thursday, October 24, 2013 6:00PM-8:00PM
Computational Fashion is supported in part by The Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York State Legislature and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
