FASHION COLLOQUIUM • Speaker
The design of the Silence Suit, developed for Awareness Lab.
Silence Suit is a wearable that allows users to capture biometric and environmental data during meditation. The suit is part of a learning system that will optimise the environment of each individual user for meditation. Users can: experiment with, explore and improve their own meditation practice. Users may build custom applications with their data e.g. artistic visualisations or feedback systems.
The ‘Fashion Colloquium: Searching for the New Luxury’ explores new definitions of ‘luxury’ against the backdrop of urgent environmental and social issues. Fashion is in dire need of more value-based critical thinking as well as design-driven research to thoroughly explore, disrupt, redefine and transform the system.
