Francis Bitonti Studio’s New Skins Summer 2014, San Francisco Workshop will be an interrogation of the skin. We will move the skin towards something animalistic or between animal, human, and machine. This workshop will continue to focus on the investigative use of computation to create new morphologies, including research of both organic and synthetic morphologies to create new skins. We will also study the design and fabrication of complex differentiated articulated textiles. We will examine not only how to create articulated 3D printed flexible fabrics, but how to create textures that transform with movement and animate themselves across the body. We will then synthesize this research into the creation of an articulated garment in a collaborative environment.
Note: Students are required to bring a laptop computer.
