A Postdoc project outline
With the rise of new technologies, the fashion industry, one of the most polluting sectors, has a renewed chance to change its course. Yet for this it needs to borrow original methodologies from other fields that envisage alternative futures. The Valencian fashion sector offers a suitable context to take experimentation further. The proposed trans-disciplinary project works at the intersection of fashion, visual arts, digital printing and new materialism(s) to push the boundaries of knowledge. It makes an innovative use of methods from medicine and philosophy to ideate designer interviews and participatory workshops that facilitate the production of digitally printed design objects.
