Without overshadowing the leading players – the fabrics of course – a little robot guest stars in the Première Vision Fabrics film. This “magic arm” is the best friend of architect Paul Coudamy, who rescued it from daily labour on industrial assembly lines. In its new life, it’s programmed to aid with prototyping, cutting-out, laser engraving and more. For the spring-summer 17 season at Fabrics, it’s role was to give life to fabrics, and evoke the complicity between poetry and technology, the rational and the irrational, science and romance.
