bio-accessories by ben landau and brittany veitch
bio-accessories by australian designers ben landau and brittany veitch are a series
of wearable couture pieces which mask the unpleasant sights, sounds and scents of
a city in an attempt to bring some of the natural world back into civil living.
each piece of bio-accessories incorporates a living organism to accompany the wearer
throughout their day, creating a symbiotic relationship. the human tends to the animal
or plant, which reciprocates by bringing fresh air, light, greenery, privacy or birdsong
to the wearer. the pieces are representative of mobile natural environments, framed
within a fashionable alternative.
bio-accessories is an experimental speculation of responsive, functional, fashionable
and emotional craft within a city living context. it is currently on show as part of craft
victoria’s craft cubed exhibition at the city library for the month of august.
