In March, Google Arts and Culture and Jacquard by Google — the platform known for technologically driven, conductible yarn — launched a residency program that focused in exploring the connections between technology, art and fashion. The program itself has launched to create works using the material’s programming into physical works.
Now, the companies have selected three artists, Oma Space Studio, Chloe Bensahel, and Amor Munoz to participate in the residency program based on their ideas to incorporate the Jacquard technology into their proposed artwork ideas.
Jacquard by Google is a technology that allows fashion brands to create connected textiles and materials. Using a conductive metal alloy with natural and synthetic fibers, Jacquard is a thin, spun material that feels synonymous to traditional yarn.
