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.

  • Euel Gibbons [several comments above] put it nicely.

    Perhaps better to consider the subjective nature of art before doltishly bashing interesting creations.

    True enough I wouldn’t wear shrubbery on my face – but I hardly think that’s the point.

  • You know, I’ve often wondered “When, oh when, will some artist design a garden fence you can wear on your face?”
