Computational Fashion in New York is an Eyebeam initiative bringing together artists, scientists, technologists and the fashion industry to explore possibilities at the convergence of fashion and creative technology. The lead consultant is Dr. Sabine Seymour, owner of Moondial and professor of Fashionable Technology at Parsons The New School for Design.
The goal of the project is to support research, collaboration, and the presentation of experimental and cutting edge technology that can be applied to all aspects of the fashion industry. The project includes artist commissions, bi-monthly meetings and workshops, a toolkit on new techniques and materials, and a culminating symposium and exhibition of work developed over the course of the project.
Four artist/scientist collaborations will be supported by the project, two a year.
