T H E U N S E E N S W A R O V S K I

For Swarovski; T H E U N S E E N has exemplified an understanding of the hidden properties of the Gem stone, together with Emerging future technologies. A glimpse into the bespoke relationship between the Swarovski Gem stone and the world of material science. Research during the Vicenza workshop resulted in a collaborative head piece, Crafted from SWAROVSKI Spinel stones, enhanced with T H E U N S E E N Magick.

Over 4000 Black Spinel were chosen for their material composition; being similar to that found in the human bone.
This parallel makes

the gemstone compatible with the human, enabling each stone when worn to act as a conduction insulator, absorbing energy loss from the head.

T H E U N S E E N Magick, enables the Spinel to visualise this energy loss with a colour change gradient, through black > orange > red > green > blue > purple. Using the Swarovski stone ensured precise regularity across the stones.

We discovered the pattern formation in the colour of each stones evolves throughout the day; this fluctuates over areas of the brain in use. When worn the headpiece becomes a reflection of the inner human thought.
