-TranSwarm Entities- 2017 ( Won the 3rd price at T-Mobile fashion Fusion competition)
New fashion technology piece by music producer Newk and fashion designer Maartje Dijkstra designed and created during the Fashion Fusion lab Deutsche Telekom in Berlin.
The sculptural high fashion dress is totally build up out of small fragments (bird skulls), like cells building an organism.The parts are manual 3D printed and after printing all connected together by hand with polyester wires and green leather. The technology part is integrated in a special way- 4 small drones, that have given the same black 3D printed appearance as the dress, fly up from places inside so it looks like parts of the dress are flying away.The drones fly on the beats and melodies of music producer Newk around the model creating a little swarm.The tracking system, that was used to get the drones fly automatically, is developed by Bitcraze and are programmed during this project by creative engineer Erik Overmeire. The shoes are digital 3D printed but finished manually. The model, face of the dress, is Lisa Sophie Bärmann.
