Ying Gao: Art, Fashion and Technology

 |  by Levent Ozler
The exhibition Ying Gao: Art, Fashion and Technology presents a dozen pieces that include three series of "intelligent" garments which move and change in response to noise, sound, motion or light. These garments represent state-of-the-art research on textiles with integrated technologies but still have an amazingly poetic dimension. They draw the viewer's eye, inflating, unfolding, transforming while protecting the virtual body they cover.

For Gao, apparel art serves as a means to investigate the various ways people relate to their environment as well as contemporary complex social and technological issues.
