On Sunday I visited the Museum of Fine Arts for the opening of it’s newest contemporary exhibit, #techstyle. The exhibit explores technology’s influence on fashion design and was really remarkable to see. Several works were intended as performance art while others addressed the issue of waste and sustainability by utilizing repurposed materials. I was especially drawn to a number of pieces that had been created using 3-D printers.
The show runs through July 10 and I would highly recommend seeing it. Below are some photos I took during my visit. Enjoy!
