    project details

    Future skins, New identities is a design research project that explores how we can tap into unconscious desires and take use of emerging technologies to trigger people in taking on new approaches when we are dressing the body. The project discusses subjects such as; how new technologies in medical industries are effecting our understanding of the body and how we interact with it or how our online networking is effecting the way we decorate the skin. When translating these changes in how we can dress the body or communicate with the body itself, new roles for the wearer emerge, asking for a new approach in fashion design. Therefore Future Skins, New Identities debates our current design practice and it’s durability.
