Through my project I want to showcase technologies regenerative force instead of being perceived as purely destructive. Inspired by the amalgamation of the biological and artificial, I have produced garments that perform like small ecosystems. This functions through successive chemical reactions with the utilisation of phase transforming materials as paraffin wax and hot ice. The human model will offset the heat of the hot ice through kinetic energy this will create a chain reaction of melting wax. Thus, creating design that bio mimics an ecosystem through the man made and technology.
