Wexner Prize Installation 2004
A-POC: Radical and Practical
May 11, 2004–May 28, 2004
See selected examples of Issey Miyake's work firsthand in this installation highlighting his work with A-POC (A Piece of Cloth), initiated in the late 1990s. A-POC takes Miyake's touchstone idea of creating clothing from a single piece of cloth to its most modern realization. With A-POC, a piece of thread is fed into a machine, and, in a single computer-aided process, the fabric, texture, and form of a finished garment are created without cutting or sewing.

By no means intended as a full-scale exhibition, this installation reflects Issey Miyake's wish to share a few of his latest efforts with Ohio State students during his visit to campus to receive the Wexner Prize. Happily, it also allows the Wexner Center's broader audiences to experience his work firsthand.
