Latent Couture by Mikey Woodbridge
LATENT COUTURE presents AI fashion as digital synthesis of lived experience. 555 fashion statements generated from photographs of Woodbridge's years of experience as a performer, painter, designer, and nightlife icon.
"A look is a meme – it communicates a belief about what a human being can be. Each of the fashion statements in LATENT COUTURE says, ‘This person is possible.’
I view generative AI fashion as the opposite of the deepfake – it reaches into the latent space to find the deepreal, the force of possibility that enables us to break the cycles of cultural reproduction."
