    The Digital Couture Collection

    ​Proposing a concept where technologists become the designers of the future, utilising technology as their design tools, to craft the new future human. Immateriality is the A/W’62’ collection of digital skins, inspired by morphogenesis and mineral crystallisation processes, a series of radical non-human like aesthetics have been fashioned. Providing a digital couture service that is tailored to the consumers needs, by facilitating the re-design and enhancement of the physical human-self, to enable the consumer to embody or become the notion of the perfect human.

  2. What is the next issue to undergo a sea change in social acceptance?

    “Far more generalized acceptance of widespread variations in human behavior. All of us who were raised pre-Internet were taught that there is something called ‘normal,’ and I think that whole concept might go right out the window.” - Marc Andreessen

  3. "But big data do not solve the problem that has obsessed statisticians and scientists for centuries: the problem of insight, of inferring what is going on, and figuring out how we might intervene to change a system for the better."

    "Statisticians are scrambling to develop new methods to seize the opportunity of big data. Such new methods are essential but they will work by building on the old statistical lessons, not by ignoring them."



    "“Big data” has arrived, but big insights have not. The challenge now is to solve new problems and gain new answers – without making the same old statistical mistakes on a grander scale than ever."

  4. The aesthetic of the post-human

    "Images made of numbers. A virtual presence, auto-instantiated in direct connection from the source. Real-time portraits of complex sets of movements. Non anthropomorphological reflections of bodily actions. Non gendered, neutral images of functions. Non-conscious perceptions actualized in material, virtual forms. Bodies in motion converted into symbols. Bodies in control. Sense-making machines. Fleeing mirrors."

  5. "Content is Queen" by Sergio Albiac is a portrait created using an innovative generative technique developed by the artist called "generative video painting". This generative portrait reflects on the foundations of democracy and the resilient nature of the structures of power.

  6. "Artist Andre Wee constructs figurative and metaphoric representations of limbo in his series titled Forming and Fragmenting. The artist interprets this collection of work as “An experience of being of two different states at the same time and yet, not belonging to either” and refers to the subjects’ disposition as being in “an eternal state of transition.” It is unclear whether his geometric renderings are regenerating their human form or disintegrating into nothingness.”

  7. Encouraged by scientific intelligence and imagination, technology tends to expand itself to the level of science-fictional proportions, but when it faces human interaction, this comes as a reality check that puts it back on its tracks.
