More Than Meets The Eye


Known for her artistic endeavors, Miuccia Prada produced a tetrahedron-shaped structure to exhibit art, fashion and video installations in Seoul’s Gyeongui Palace through the fall.  The 160-ton steel structure, covered in white polyvinyl, is completely mobile and can be lifted and rotated to create a new shape in about an hour. Over the course of the next few months, the structure will take on a series of forms—each corresponding with the respective show on display within.  Currently on show is Miuccia’s own “Waist Down” exhibit, covering of a range of Prada skirts. After May 24th, the shape with morph into a square and Mexican film director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, will then show his selected films in the space until July 12. In its final phase, the Prada Transformer will change into a circle, and will house a fashion show that is completely free to the public.
