21st November These amazing T-shirts are products of a collaboration between Linda Kostowski and Mashallah Design whose designers shaped the grey jersey fabric based on digital scans of their bodies and their lives’ narratives. The results are a range of personified, multi-faceted garments which convey poetry through digital fabrication. Check out their website The T-shirt Issue in detail.
The T-Shirt Issue (2008) jersey fabric. Created by 3D scans of human body rendered as polygons and manipulated/extended. The 3D data is turned into 2D sewing patterns by using the unfolding function, which is a common tool used for paper models. The fabric and the inner interface, which defines the edges, are cut out with a laser cutter.
