RECENT PROJECTS

 

“Slave/Master” was a flagship event for the V&A Museum for both London Design Festival and Digital Design Weekend 2017, reflecting a reversal of the traditional “fear” portrayed in modern science-fiction films of robots oppressing and interfering with human existence. The installation combined contemporary dance, cutting-edge robotics and interactive projection graphics to create a collaborative performance between all of these elements.

BRIA and forward-looking fashion brand SABINNA collaborated to transform a fashion capsule collection of wardrobe “staples” into new 100% biodegradable materials for use in garment packaging and shop interiors. By developing innovative processes for transforming garments into new biodegradable materials, they have successfully demonstrated that it is possible for brands to create commercial fashion that is circular and that never needs to go into landfill.

The Brooke Roberts Innovation Agency (BRIA) are artists-in-residence at King’s College London. Working in collaboration with Dr Matthew Howard, Lecturer in Informatics (Robotics), BRIA have been resident in the Department of Informatics, Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, on a project exploring digital knitwear design and the development of experimental ‘wearable’ textiles.
