The Hungry Few.

This is for the hungry few.
The dirty, thirsty, truth in you.
The information overload.
The rhetoric call to those who know.
The inner sense to search & sew.
For deeper cause, a many foe.
Civilian soldier plays Simon said.
A heavy heart, goes armed with led.
Watered down, trickery.
Expose the worst in those who lead.
And leave it to the hungry few.
For whom knowledge is the inner food.

OMOTE - The Futue Is Now.

Imagine theater where performers can change their makeup—and essential their character—in real-time without going off stage and applying a new layer of eyeliner. In a new video by Nobumichi Asai called Omote, such a future is imagined as a model's faced is morphed on the spot with makeup made of light.

In the two-minute clip, the subject's face is immersed in transformative visuals, a kind of "digital makeup," using motion capture technology and projection mapping. With impressive accuracy the face is scanned before becoming a series of stunning masks that work even as the face moves around. The visuals range from makeup, rouge and some eyeliner, to a full-on cyborg face with amazing animated visuals that turn the model's face into a reflective surface.

This is next level garment. The future is here.

Ink stains. Muddled chains.
Changing hues. Instant muse.
It morphs within the subtle wind.
A contact painted on so thin.


The air is made up of many different components that are products of our environment, including pollution, moisture, and more. London-based artist Lauren Bowker and her material exploration studio THE UNSEEN have developed a form of ink that’s reactive to the different fluctuations in the wind as well as our own body. It’s demonstrated in a couture capsule collection entitled Air, which was designed for Swarovski and presented during London’s Fashion Week 2014.

The biological and chemical technology is integrated into layers of fabric and transforms its color in response to pressure change. Air’s nano compounds, inks, and dyes are capable of sensing up to seven stimuli: heat, UV, pollution, moisture, chemicals, friction, and sound. Each element has a different color-altering effect; pollution, for instance, can change between yellow to black. The result is that it translates our environment into a stunning visual representation, where a multi-faceted garment is reminiscent of an insect’s iridescent exoskeleton.
