Peripheral Ostosis - MA Material Futures Project
A future exoskeleton to facilitate our relationship with technology
COULD GARMENTS ACT AS A VEHICLE IN WHICH TO QUESTION OUR DEPENDENCE ON TECHNOLOGY IN A SMATPHONE DOMINANT AGE?
The mobile phone has become a necessary tool in our daily lives. However, despite the fact that it is an extraordinarily useful tool, excessive use, especially among adolescents, has not only changed the way we interact with the environment around us, but has also changed us physically.
Whit the advancement of applications and the widespread introduction of web-enabled handsets, we have also seen the emergence of a new ‘always-on’ generation. For these new ‘Millennials’, the mobile phone is seen less as a secondary device, but rather a physical extension of their body. For many, the absence of their mobile phone evokes strong phantom limb sensation and feelings of vulnerability.
By highlighting these behavioural and physical trends, it is intended that these ‘Exoskeleton’ garments will illustrate how our physical bodies are moulding around contemporary technologies and cause us to question the long term impact such devices will have on our neurological and physiological selves.
Collective Excitation - BA Fashion Project
'Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.' (Niels Bohr)
'Collective Excitation' is based on Quantum Mechanics, the unreal world that is made of very real Atoms and Particles, the world where there is more then 3 dimensions and single particle can be in million different places at the same time.
In this collection I tried to translate Particle behaviour, its characteristics and impossibilities into something that can be acknowledged by human eye.
'If Quantum Mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.' (Niels Bohr)
Join us to celebrate creativity and spot the stars of the future this summer. Eclectic exhibitions of art, design, fashion, communication and performance are taking place at sites across London from April to September and are free to attend.More information
