3D Printed “Names Dress” – 300 Powerful Women in STEAM 1000 752 mathgrrl

Here are just some of the 3D-printed handwritten names that make up the Names Dress, part of the Sustainable Thinking exhibit at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence, Italy:

This conceptual (and compostable!) art piece was created by fashion designer and tech pioneer Sylvia Heisel using Sophia Georgiou’s Morphi software, and 3D printed with the help of Liz Arum from Ultimaker. Three hundred names of professional, groundbreaking women from STEAM fields were used as the “fabric” of the dress. I’m honored to have been included as one of these names, along with many of my colleagues and friends from the Lady Tech Guild:

You can see a short video of the dress in this Evil Mad Scientist article, and read more about the project (including the names and biographies of all 300 women featured on the dress!) at namesdress.com.  The dress will be on exhibit at the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo until March 2020.
