Our machines dress us, and undress us

As part of the inaugural Leeds Digital Fashion Week in October 2012, Carbon was commissioned to write a piece exploring the relationships between digital culture, technology and fashion.

The work, titled Our machines dress us, and undress us, introduced a range of emerging technologies, from algorithmic design, 3D printing, surveillance culture, clothes-as-a-service, wearable devices and synthetic biology. The narrative structure arranged these developments into a poetic narrative on how machines and humans are symbiotically connected through the web and through fashion.

The final piece was published on The City Talking, Yarn, Medium and Cowbird. Carbon was also approached about translating it into a short film.
