What happens when you arm a technical robot with a glue gun, program it with the right code and set it to work on a sheet of stretched fabric?
This stunning piece created by Anna Piecek and a Kuka robot at Kunstuniversität Linz is an interesting fusion of fashion and robotics that might just be as appealing to the coders as to the catwalk pundits of Paris.
‘Artist Anna Piecek’s main objective in this project was to come up with new and innovative ways to work with textiles by making volumes and unconventional shapes with methods that had never before been used in the context of fabric design.’
Without those coders however, Anna’s dress may never have materialised ( sorry about the pun ).
