The MFA Dress is an interactive Haute Couture dress commissioned by the Museum of Fine Arts Boston for their permanent collection.
CuteCircuit used their Magic Fabric interactive textile technology for the recent commission, incorporating more than 10,000 MicroLEDs and sensors to create animations on the surface of a stunning haute couture evening gown. The MFA Dress is both lightweight and wearable employing the savoir-faire of CuteCircuit’s haute couture dressmaking techniques and cutting edge wearable technology.
Visitors to the #techstyle exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts can use an iPad running the CuteCircuit Q App to select images from the MFAs collection, including Hokusai’s Great Wave and Ellsworth Kelly’s Blue Green Yellow Orange Red to display on the dress in real time with extraordinary colour depth.
The CuteCircuit MFA dress is the centrepiece of the #TECHSTYLE exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
