About The Fabric of Cultures: Objects, Memory, Technology is a research and pedagogic lab that aims to further understanding of fashion and global clothing.
Fabric of Cultures cover
Description Fashion is a behavioral phenomenon that intersects with media, race and gender, personal and collective identities, labor and technology. Clothing is an emotional object. It presses against our skin leaving an imprint on our intimate selves.

Clothing is the site for experimentation in art, design, technology and form. Once clothing, through its intermediaries, is translated into fashion, it becomes a strong platform of communication and acts as a symbolic system that connects geopolitical spaces, identities and experiences.

The objects that have been selected for the initial stage of this project guide our understanding of the interconnected paths described above. They are organized according to three letters of the alphabet T I P:

T as T-Shirts

I as Intersections

P as Pleats

Each garment opens up a story that is told through connections of details and motives with other objects represented in the chosen categories. Each letter opens up a window.
