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.
