ARAN LABS exists to counteract how boring and transactional buying clothes has become. DREAM;WAKE
is an experiment in how we can do that - building VR dreamscapes and interactive artwork customisation tools to connect us with what we're wearing.
In residency at The Koppel Project Campus, ARAN LABS invited MRWIZE
to co-create a full custom look, with LUEDER
studio reworking his garments. Prints were developed in the DREAM;WAKE virtual environment, with elements from Charles Jeffrey, Ciaran Moore, Gabriel Massan, Salves van der Gronde and Stevie Newall.
Today (10.7.20), we release a limited collection of one-off printed archive stock t-shirts, available to customise through capturing perspectives of 3D sculptures in your browser
. All recycled cotton deadstock items, printed on demand with eco-friendly water based inks.
