A REALLY FAKE FUTURE
September 20, 2018 - September 29, 2018
Opening: September 19th
Jason Page & Karen Huang
Especially for Unseen Amsterdam, iso presents A Really Fake Future, a collaborative project by textile-based designers Karen Huang (TW) and Jason Page (US), inspired by the tapestries of Dutch artist Elma Beks (1926-2014). The project envisions a future where traditional textile handicrafts such as quilting, embroidery and design are replaced by automated production and digital representation as a result of artificial intelligence. Translating 3D materials to 2D images, the designers question what textile craftsmanship may look like in the future. The exhibition A Really Fake Future is curated by Florence Parot, co-founder of iso, and will feature material research in digital image making and textiles.
