Sadie Clayton graduated from Kingston University in 2013 with a BA Honors Fashion Design. Fascinated by design and innovation, Sadie took these foundations to explore the creative boundaries between art, technology and fashion presenting her Spring /Summer 2017 collection at the Royal Academy of the Arts in holographic form in collaboration with MHD holograms, and presenting her working process with copper through Augmented Reality for her Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Sadie has showcased and demonstrated the art of working with copper metals as a part of the Nick Waplington / Alexander McQueen: Working Process exhibition at the Tate Britain, lead several workshops at the Tate Modern for Late at the Tate and at the Ace Hotel as part of London Craft Week 2019. Sadie started to take her creativity away from the confines of the body and released herself as a creator and innovator debuting her copper wearable art at Art Basel Miami at the Red Dot Gallery, and later at the Museum of Art and Design as part of Singapore Design Week. Fast forward to October 2018, Shanghai and Sadie takes these demonstrations of her working process to another level. Collaborating for the second time, following the success of COGX in London, with Sophia, the first ever social, humanoid robot, programmed through AI, created by Hanson Robotics. Sadie and Sophia continued their exploration of Sadie’s working process, and her journey to harness Art, Design and Technology which became a reality during the event at Shanghai fashion weekend as Sadie designed bespoke, copper and 3D printed arm cuffs for Sophia. An on-going conversation which meant Sadie presented her latest work in New York in April as part of the Designing Our Future exhibition hung in a human form to break down the mental barriers between human and humanoid. Sadie’s creative drive to innovate and take her art to the next level meant that in October 2019 she became the first artist to create works of art together with the first Artist robot, Ai-Da the robot, at the Tate Modern as part of the Tate Exchange exploring the theme of technology and the human extension of self and how technology can transform and influence society, and facilitate or exacerbate existing racial dynamics. As part of this creative exchange between Human Artist and robot artist, Sadie took inspiration from Andy Warhol’s video portraits to explore the limits of a humans’ virtual self, and created mini workshops where she dynamically responded to Ai-Da’s drawings, in themselves created by Sadie’s moodboards, to develop a mini-prototype copper sanctuary.
