PERSPIRE

Every human being is different and so is the sweat they produce. Each crystals is a unique materialization of our own biology encapsulating our health, well being and identity.Using human sweat i grow crystals that feed of the bodies impurities growing individually to the person. After multiple tests i have only begun to find characteristics that create similar structures such a genetics but also begin to identify molecules in the sweat crystals.

CASE STUDIES

Every crystal is unique. Our bodies sweat different amounts depending on the amount of sweat glands. With most sweat being produced on either the hands or feet. How could this effect the size and growth. With males sweating more then women, would there be an obvious difference between size or structure.

BIOPLASTIC SAMPLES

With so many different variations of bioplastic being produced, How can i begin to adapt them to work in the fashion industry. Would changing the qualities of the material allow them to work with the body. How would this effect the life span of the Bioplastic. Could it improve the function of the body.

FOODWASTE

Every year 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted meaning 1/3 of the annual food production around the world goes to landfill. Textiles waste, is also a major issue. The fashion industry is now the second most polluting industry in the world, second to the manufacturing of oil. In the UK alone, approximately 1.7 million tonnes of textile waste is produced on an annual basis, 1.2 of which is through clothing.
