DIGITAL T-SHIRT PROJECT Mashallah Design and Linda Kostowski
Three people are portrayed digitally by scanning their bodies. The output of this scan is a 3D file, which resolution is defined by the amount of polygons. Linked with their biographical memories a digital twin of the body is thus created which expands and personifies the garment in a formal poetic way.
See the following images and read their story below to understand:
“After hearing a story about a boy brought up by a wolf I wanted this more than anything else. The wolf would have accompanied my nocturnal wanderings, would have eagerly shared my reconnaissances and sometimes my thunderous sighs.”
“When I was small and just about to learn swimming I was petrified that my swimmies would leak. I squeezed them constantly to check the air level. Surprisingly the swimmies had a different effect outside the water, they gave me tremendous self assurance. In default of that I just left them on all the time.”
“She changed my life from the first moment I was fitting her, when she slipped through my drapery purring. The sounds she made, unerring and self-confident. She fills my design with ease, making me believe in her more than ever.”
The t-shirt issue is not finished…It looks like origami, and basically it is some kind of origami in change that here we work with fabric.
After more than 100 years of uniform T-shirts, we finally broke the code and started reconstructing apparel from the core. From 2D to 3D, we opened an entirely new dimension in which apparel can take any shape imaginable.
