Julien Fournie 3D design and Neoprene

Designer Julien fournie started designing garments using man made fiber neoprene, a rubberized type material that is notoriously difficult to sew. He therefore decided to take designs to engineers who would then be able to find the right pressure for the sewing machine needle that ensured the needle didn't break as well as coming up with way for the designers to create sketches in 3D eliminating the need to create multiple sketches from different view points therefore saving time.

Exoskeleton Performance by Stelarc

Stelarc is a visual performance artist who I have a particular interest in. His works incorporate the use of technology to create unique art performances. The prominence of his work is the notion of the body as obsolete. This is ultimately what drives his work, the robotics used controls his body and showcase a strong notion of technology and its evolution. The above work shows an his exoskeleton piece which inspired me with its strong use of robotics and technology.
