The Hemingwrite is the over-engineered typewriter for the 21st century.
I dig it
today was my last day in my creative writing class and my teacher gave everybody a piece of paper to write down a contract and to put it in our wallets. she said she did the same thing when she was younger and every now and then she’d brush by it and remember that she wanted to write. everybody took time to write out what they wanted and I just sat at the back of the class, sitting on the windowsill and I knew there was only one thing to write but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. at the end of the class after everybody left, I went to thank her for the year, and she told me that people should be reading my words for a long time, but they won’t be able to do that if I’m not around to write them. I showed her the blank piece of paper, and she said it was okay not to write anything, and then I wrote this. I learned the power of words in that class, I learned it was okay to vomit up half a dozen notebooks stained with blood and exploded pens because it means you have something to say.

This headpiece by T H E U N S E E N for Swarovski changes color based on brain activity.
T H E U N S E E N on the project:
For Swarovski; T H E U N S E E N has exemplified an understanding of the hidden properties of the Gem stone, together with Emerging future technologies. A glimpse into the bespoke relationship between the Swarovski Gem stone and the world of material science. Research during the Vicenza workshop resulted in a collaborative head piece, Crafted from SWAROVSKI Spinel stones, enhanced with T H E U N S E E N Magick.
Over 4000 Black Spinel were chosen for their material composition; being similar to that found in the human bone. This parallel makes the gemstone compatible with the human, enabling each stone when worn to act as a conduction insulator, absorbing energy loss from the head.
T H E U N S E E N Magick, enables the Spinel to visualise this energy loss with a colour change gradient, through black > orange > red > green > blue > purple. Using the Swarovski stone ensured precise regularity across the stones.
We discovered the pattern formation in the colour of each stones evolves throughout the day; this fluctuates over areas of the brain in use. When worn the headpiece becomes a reflection of the inner human thought.

Experimental digital short film by Marta Di Francesco explores a human form in a state of metamorphosis, made with a Depthkit Kinect camera - video embedded below:
Inspired by the journey of Ishtar into the Underworld, a short film about metamorphosis - a journey from abstraction to beauty, from the wrapping geometries of darkness to grace, pulsing between the violence of change and the ever radical beauty of morphing angles & lines.
