In World 161 in the year 2150, e-textiles are integrated with traditional craftsmanship to reconnect with memories of the past,
SENSORIUM is distinctive for its innovative and creative expression of the Asian cultural heritage and craftsmanship. Emotionally, these cultural techniques can be personalised to represent the wearer’s unique identity. As SENSORIUM is all about crafting senses, the collection “MEMOIRS” was created as a vehicle of expression to reignite a connection to our forgotten roots through the reconfiguration of the body’s generic and symbolic modes of representation. By engaging the audience on multiple levels through ASMR accompanied by fluid movements, our aim is to evoke a sense of yearning to the past in the digital space.
