KATE REED

INSPIRATION BEHING THE ARTWORK

VANEBON often takes inspiration from vintage films with Sci-fi elements. We sent Sarah Mayer a brief moodboard with this futuristic but vintage aesthetic, and she played around with this mood, using backgrounds that perhaps resembled those of the posters of old futuristic films but incorporating her signature touch from the future with all the moving metallic parts surrounding the garment.

TONY MURRAY

INSPIRATION BEHING THE ARTWORK

Kate and I discussed the recurring patterns and structures observed in biological growth which Kate draws on for her work. Expanding on her biodesign work, we looked to plant stem cells to inform the silhouette of a wearable form made up of structures nicknamed barnacles. Using the same coding used to create the dress structure, netlike forms were created for the head and sleeves and applied to an avatar which walks in an uncanny valley.

BIOGRAPHY

Tony Murray is a designer, educator, and digital artist based in San Francisco, California.

His work focuses on fashion storytelling at the intersection of the real and the unreal, using digital tools as a medium for imagining garment structures unhindered by the laws of physics and playing in the uncanny valley of digital representation of humanity.
