Growing with Garments
‘Growing with Garments’ created a living system on garments and invited participants todesign, grow and wear them for a month. The experiment revealed that people tend to pay more attention and give more care to the materials in use when living organisms participate in a design. Facilitating human mindsets is a new direction for biodesign to prospect.
