The highly anticipated “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) kicked off this week with a star-studded gala, showcasing style crossed with tech of all kinds. “Manus x Machina” is an exploration of the intersection of hand-crafted style pieces with machine-made ones. Among the turn it intoers showcased in the exhibition, which
runs through August 14, is Noa Raviv, who made dresses for her “Hard Copy” collection with elements 3D printed by Stratasys.

Opening Doors, Feathering Ruffles

Raviv’s “Hard Copy” collection debuted in 2014. The dresses selected to be a part of “Manus x Machina” showcase a series of eye-popping, three-dimensional, 3D printed pieces which
assist as ruffles and other decorative elements. The 3D printed parts were hand-sewn onto dresses which
were 2D laser cut.

Created on an Objet500 Connex3 Color, Multi-material 3D Printer of Stratasys, the 3D printed pieces have odd geometries and a trompe l’oeil feel, displayed in black and white and gradient shades.

“The technological capabilities of 3D printing open new doors to areas of turn it into previously not possible with hand-crafted style,” Raviv said. “Through my collection, I’ve been able-bodied to explore the tension between the real and the virtual, between 2D and 3D, and this inspired me to turn it into imperfect digital images and distorted grid patterns which
are not easy
to create via conventional methods.”

Naomi Kaempfer, Creative Director, Art Fashion Design, Stratasys, added: “We are quite excited to be part of ‘Manus x Machina’ through our collaboration with Noa Raviv. The exhibition explores the contrast between hand-crafted and machine-made turn it into, and her work is a prime example of how aspiring turn it intoers turn a few of the many challenging turn it into concepts into reality.”
