World 200, Exploration A

In World 200, Singaporeans are forced to wear a uniform because landfills are overflowing with textile waste. How can you find your own identity within a uniform?

OSMOSIS is a textile dyeing service specialising in bacteria dyeing. This service serves as an outlet for expression and individuality while having it be sustainable, economical and non-toxic with the use of bacteria. These images show how the citizens of this regimental world look like living their life while having the OSMOSISSIES stand out from the crowd with their bacteria-dyed garments.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
