I worked for a time in 2006 at The Banff New Media Institute in Banff Alberta, and there I met my friend Geoff Lillemon, which whom I am collaborating on this project. He is the creative director for the media digital design co. Champagne Valentine (http://champagnevalentine.
from which we are working to create complimentary clothing and animation environments.
I want to make clothes that can be projected upon, or will be displayed as part of a larger picture of digital animation, and also garments with illustrations and moving parts that complement a digital animation. I would like to be able to display the works in a variety of ways, either as projections in conjunction with a cat walk type event, standing mannequins juxtaposed with looped projections, or something more theatrical with live models and the animation serving almost more as a set. There are some venues that have asked me to put together a fashion show/performance/fashion art5 installation, and I am also looking for more venues. Send the word birds
