Alex Dodge’s Generative Collection
A new series of conceptual creations mix technology and art to produce prototype garments of the future.
New York artist Alex Dodge’s new collection is a collaboration between him and Brooklyn-based tech startup Generative. The series consists of prototype garments that bring together a relationship among technology, art, design, and humanity.
One of his prototypes is the ‘Sleep Talker’ which offers a communication channel for multiple users to interact while in similar states of sleep. The device uses software that identifies a user’s dormant state using electrodes embedded in the sleep cap, and pairs it with another user having a similar dream on the sleep talker social network, thus creating a dialogue of unconscious experiences in a specialized network.
