The Fiber Collective presents:
FIBER: A TRANSMEDIA FASHION SHOW AND CELEBRATION
OCTOBER 14, 1995
150 Folsom Street (at Spear)
Party: 10 pm-6 am
Fashion show: 12:30 am
Tickets: $7 in advance/$10 at the door
SAN FRANCISCO- On Saturday, October 14, 1995, a party called Fiber will
weave together the digital technology of today with the fashion designs of
tomorrow in a presentation of new work by Bay Area artists. Fiber shifts
away from the traditional fashion show paradigm by showcasing the garments
in the sensory-overloading environment they were created to be worn in.
Models are replaced with dancers, runways with podiums. Transmedia artists,
laser technicians, DJs, and musicians are working with the fashion
designers to create a pure thoughtspace celebrating creativity,
collaboration and global communication via the Internet. A team of
videographers will shoot the festivities, mix the images with surreal
prerecorded footage, textual messages, and computer animation produced
on-the-fly, and project the visual blends as hypnotic electric wallpaper.
The entire psychedelic spectacle will be transmitted onto both a World Wide
Web page and over the Internet in real time for viewing with CU-SeeMe
desktop videoconferencing software. The Fiber Collective embraces computers
and the Internet as empowering tools enabling individuals to generate and
distribute their own media content without the need for deep-pocketed
middlemen. The process is the product.
Annie Phyo is a digital video and computer artist, webmistress and
professional multimediatrix. She has worked with Cyberlab7 and is a
founding member of Dimension7, two experimental media production houses in
