The space in between: Love Jackets
Initially conceived as a student project in 1997, the LoveJackets are an attempt to explore the ways in which technology intersects with social expressions of possibility. Using infrared communication, a ring of LEDs and a speaker, and inspired by Plato’s Symposium, the LoveJackets are exploring the techno-social meaning of embeddedness.
The LoveJackets were part of the Pattern Language: Clothing as Communicator exhibition, curated by Judith Hoos Fox, traveling Summer 2005-Winter 2008: Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the University Art Museum at the University of California Santa Barbara, and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
Courtly bags, a variation of the LoveJackets concept and technology, were part of the AsFour Spring 2001 New York collection and were shown as part of Sartorial Flux, A+D Gallery, Chicago in 2006.
