Our lives are filled with data but where is it stored?
Research has recently discovered the possibility of plant DNA storing data – what’s interesting is the fact that as a plant evolves, this data evolves with it. This is right up luvshifting’s street as we love exploring fashion design concepts around botanicals and technology!
For this collection we have used poems in the place of data, which we have infused with flowers. As the flowers grow, the data mutates and diversifies into our incredible geometric shaped garments, flourished with silk linings.
For more information about the interplay between plants and data storage, check out the work of Karin Ljubič, ‘Breaking the Wall of Data Storage.’
