Aussies, listen up. dLux Media Arts is organising a unique spectacle of the senses this September. The organization, which supports cultural vibrancy, will take part in Sydney’s Fringe Festival with a one-night event showcasing some of Australia’s leading artists and designers in the fields of fashion, technology, digital, industrial art and sound engineering.
sARTorial, as the event is called, will be part fashion show, part exhibition, exploring the potential of merging fashion with cutting-edge interactive art and electronics. The event invites fashion designers, media artists, makers, geeks and technophiles to meet up, experiment and share their visions for the future.
This year’s sARTorial will revolve around four sensory elements – light, sounds, movement and touch. Drawing on these elements, the artists and designers will create one-off wearable pieces using the latest techniques and design technologies to produce interactive wearable artworks.
sARTorial’s 2016 ambassador is designer and artist Erica Gray, who is recognized as one of the leading figures in the field of wearable art, with her sculptural creations winning awards both in Australia and at New Zealand’s internationally acclaimed World of WearableArt (WOW).
The even hints at the future of dLux and aims to create experiences that generate a deeper understanding of art and technology for stronger and healthier communities.
