As a pioneer in the digital fashion design space, Designer Francis Bitonti’s practice is primarily concerned with the wearable applications of computationally-based design methodologies and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies.
Computation is now a medium that permeates popular culture. 3D printing enables this link between the physical work and a virtual design environment for designers today. The goal for the New Skins Workshop was to have the students embrace computation as a means of artistic expression. Filmmaker Andy Strohl was there to capture this ground breaking work with beautiful imagery and imagination.
