Oliver Hunter Porohille and Holly Bell Beaton present ‘All Is Precious’: a capsule collection of digital garments designed in relationship with planet earth.
The capsule collection aligns with the elements of air, fire, earth, water, and Spirit, based on the belief that these are the subtle energies that weave together all matter, and thus should be translated into a meta-digital framework.
We believe that the shift towards virtual realities should not run parallel to our physical reality. Rather we should ground ourselves as a species in this new frontier through integrated principles of nature. These principles are reflected in our world-building as we envision digital biomimicry; the practice of drawing on natural phenomena, and the interconnected, genius design of nature as the foundation for technologically created realities.
