“These walls have a soul,” said Axelle Doué, a model who was once the muse to designers like Thierry Mugler and Claude Montana, sitting beside a makeshift runway here amid the battered old concrete and columns of a gallery in the Palais de Tokyo museum.
“But you know,” she said, “clothes do, too.”
It is true, as fashion historians would attest, that clothes tell a story. But what they can actually tell us, long after their owners are gone, is a matter for interpretation, which turns out to be something of a specialty of Ms. Doué.
We think electronics can have “souls” – it’s the code we put in them, our hopes and dreams for what a project can be. As we get ready to launch FLORA, we hope to tell the story of how electronics can be art.
