Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Visiting Artist Lecture: Anouk Wipprecht
Dutch-based fashion designer and innovator Anouk Wipprecht will deliver the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Visiting Artist Lecture.
Wipprecht works in the emerging field of fashion tech – a combination of fashion design, engineering, science, and user experience design. Producing an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way, she creates technological couture with systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence. Projected as ‘host’ systems on the human body, her designs move, breathe, and react to the environment around them.
Her research focuses on how we can interface in new ways with the world around us through our wardrobe.
