EMPORIUM PRESS ARCHIVE ENQUIRIES

The cleverer cousin of the A I R trio

E I G H T H S E N S E is a coded couture piece, fashioned from materials that are remotely respondent to real-time digital data, through pattern shift, hue and colour change.

From greys to blacks, pastels to vibrant rainbows controlled via a digital app built in collaboration with Holition.

An unseen force or “Aura” is outwardly emitted from every human as electromagnetic energy, these wavelengths through certain lenses can be seen as colour.

T H E U N S E E N aim to discover and investigate this invisible energy field by using a physical garment that reads human
magnetism coupled with the capture of EEG data. These biosignals are translated visually through our sculpture with the use of colour and pattern.

For instance red portrays anger, nerves and anxiety, whereas green reflects teaching, sociality and people, Blue reveals calming,
truthfulness and peace while white

mirror’s an inner state of sensitivity, intuitiveness and psychic ability.

Supported by the British Fashion Council, as an award from The Technology Strategy Board with thanks to the Trust this piece is in residence at Somerset House within T H E U N S E E N EMPORIUM.

We chose to release our research as an exorcism performance to cleanse ourselves of any previous bad energy firstly readying the body, mind and sculpture to capture and portray a pure Aura and sense of colours true to the work, un affected by anything else in that moment.
