Computational Fashion Fellow Keren Oxman is an artist and designer working at the intersection of Fine Arts Fashion and Fabrication Technology. She studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and holds a B.A. from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, and an M.A. from the Royal College of Art in London where she was a Clore Fellow. Her work experimentally investigates the formal mechanisms of generative design and their potential relation to the human body. Integrating traditional media with digital morphogenesis, her current interests attempt to combine disciplines such as textile craft with algorithmic behavior.
Keren is studying the development of generative textile morphologies through experimental multi-material 3D printing fabrication technology. The research and design will incorporate geometry with differentiated performance and will be undertaken with a group of consultants from arts-design and science-technology. These consultants include Prof. Neri Oxman of the MIT Media Lab and Prof. W. Craig Carter of MIT Dept. of Material Sciences and others.
