Original t-shirt designs!

The t-shirt designs are all a result of our fusionwear sv project/experiment where the community provided images of what Silicon Valley means to them.

Artist Corinne Okada Takara then used these images as inspiration for original Silicocn Valley textile designs.
These designs were used in the TECHstyle SoftWEAR: Surface & Shape installation on view in our galleries and in these original t-shirt designs by Corinne Okada Takara.This design was inspired by solar panels.

AbsoluteZER0 is a vibrant street festival where the public can engage with art, music, science, and technology in new and compelling ways outside on city streets.
