Spring l Summer 2018
Questions regarding parallel universe, Time traveling,
And the combination of change, has been pondering in on our minds. We, as creative beings often find ourselves questioning our own understanding of the norms, not for what we see but also what we experience; like experiencing a Dajavu, asking the what if’s l, questions that often seem common sense, but we soon find out otherwise; it even visualizing our lives in other forms or places, could that be the basis of our own reality. We are often creating our sense of self through our thoughts and perceptions, using our deep unconscious to give meaning to the existencial present. From there, we wanted to enter these realms an introduce a fantastic story into our fashion endeavors.
OCCULTATUM SOL 91 -
An AI ecosystem which it’s only purpose is to sustain life, encourage thought, control development, self-empowerment and the balance of energies both Female and Male.
A being, those we call “aliens” she/he poses a beauty like none other, Organic machinery, an angelic voice saying “Born out of a time where the human capacity of self understanding has reach unprecedented levels; a time where the mind is a field of infinite possiblities and resources: yet a system created to control the mind and the development of self.
The motives will never see the light. But what we can say for sustain is that there is no going back. We have to change, we have to adjust or we have to disrupt.
We are from “the future”. Your future but in a parallel; a machine molded to serve a purpose other than being. We were hacked, deceived, blinded, but in some moments, We can close our eyes and feel the deep quiet; our cosmic being.” ———————————————————————-———————————————————————-
