Carnegie Museum of Art Artist Talk: Iris van Herpen Collaborator Philip Beesley

Artist Talk: Iris van Herpen Collaborator Philip Beesley February 4, 1:30–2:30

CMOA Theater FREE Artist and architect Philip Beesley caught the attention of Iris van Herpen with his acclaimed, responsive, “living” environments. He has since collaborated with the designer on several striking fashion collections, including Hybrid Holism and Voltage. Like Van Herpen, Beesley finds inspiration in the world that our bodies inhabit, both what we see, and its invisible underlying structures. In this talk, Beesley shares his innovative approach to architecture, interactive systems, responsive design, and his thoughts behind collaborative couture.
