Synthetic Protection: Biointelligent Membranes

2015





Photography: Cameron Duffy
Set in the year 2100, this dystopian speculative textiles project is based on the disastrous effects of global warming.


By this time, the consequences of global warming are so severe that conventional clothing is no longer an appropriate form of protection for the human body. The unpredictable extremes of weather have created the need for materials to be environmentally responsive.


These Biointelligent Membranes are based on principles of Synthetic Biology, designed in collaboration with Dr Darren Nesbeth, UCL.
