Event Title

Cultural Exchanges

Description

Cultural Exchanges is an artistic outcome grounded in language, collaboration, technology, and sustainability. Two colleagues came together to create this gown of digitally printed Chinese dupioni with 3D printed embellishment. The finished piece is the result of a design process that was enriched with cultural and personal exchange between two individuals that came from distinctly different backgrounds; American Jewish and Korean. The design process for this work began with the development of a rich textile surface. A high-resolution scan of a painting completed by one of the designers served as the foundation for the textile. To further facilitate the exchange of cultural heritage information, traditional Korean hanbok served as a reference point for the development of the silhouette of Cultural Exchanges. The focal pendant was created with the use of Rhinoceros 3D modeling software and printed on a Makerbot Fifth Generation 3D Printer in polylactic acid (PLA), a biodegradable polymer.
