Vidmina Stasiulyte, exhibition/performance,everything and everybody a material, conference, 2017
ABSTRACT Fashion design education is mostly based on visual values and expressions. The study on sound ontology in fashion field is limited and it is a new potential territory to be explored. This paper is investigating the new non-visual perspectives on fashion design aesthetics. The main discussion of this paper is on sound as a speculative design-thinking material. This paper is focused on the exploration of sonic extensions and sonic identities as the possibility for new forms of design thinking. The Soundtopia – a speculative fashion design method is presented as the result of sonic explorations in regards to sonic identity.
