New Skins London 2014

Francis Bitonti

Francis Bitonti Studio’s New Skins Summer 2014, London workshop will be a study of multifaceted skin textures. Looking at both human and animas while investigating textures such as feather, fur and hair, this workshop will continue to focus on the investigative use of computation to create new morphologies, including research of both organic and synthetic skins textures.

We will continue to study the design and fabrication of complex differentiated articulated textiles. We will examine not only how to create articulated 3D printed flexible fabrics, but how to create textures that transform with movement and animate themselves across the body. We will then synthesize this research into the creation of an articulated garment in a studio based, collaborative environment.

Location: Ravensbourne - London

Dates: July 7 to July 18 (Monday to Friday : 1pm to 5pm)

Tuition: £2000
