Something Different: T-Shirt Issue

If you thought you had issues, get a load of the T-shirt Issue and their animated bird shirt. The interdisciplinary art collective combines fashion, design and technology to create unique, mind-bending items of clothing that range from daily basics to conceptual installations, all stemming from digital experimentation.

The group is particularly fascinated by the triangular polygon and the unlimited 3-D shapes it can produce in regular old jersey. For their Muybridge series, on view at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD), three frozen frames from a bird in flight are rigged and animated into a garment-based interpretation of the pioneering work of the 19th-century photographer Eadward Muybridge, who first captured a sense of motion through a succession of stills — the original animated GIF.
