‘In 20 steps’, Studio Drift’s art installation, accompanying Iris Van Herpen’s Syntopia collection, is a tribute to a thoughtful development acknowledging the ultimate human urge to fly. The moving wings of delicate glass symbolize the effective actions of constant development.

This glass bird moves synchronically with the models while they move over the runway, their delicate interplay highlights the delicacy of new worlds living and rising together.

“As a former dancer, the transformation within the movement has hypnotized me. For this collection, I looked closely at the minutiae of bird flight and the intricate echoing forms within avian motion. The artists Studio Drift inspired me to look more closely at the draping of a garment through chronophotograph.

By slowing down time into split seconds I started breaking down the usual draping of fabric, to then layer the milliseconds all slightly shifted, like the layering of a bird’s feather.” Iris Van Herpen

Through the ‘inside a second’ technique, Iris Van Herpen and Studio Drift map movement into a continued succession of datum, leaving the spectator with only the visible involvement of movement. Van Herpen interprets the ‘chronophotographic’ lines of bird-flight into thousands of two-toned transparent organza sheets that drape like time-lapse motion.

The mini ‘mimesis’ corset dresses are created from a mapping of birds’ sound wave patterns, made of laser cut mylar, black cotton, red organza and translucent black acrylic sheets, layering the silk and acrylic like a feather’s architecture.
