"The different current assignments of water, ecology, recreation, social sustainability and heritage will result in a working landscape park. An area where water will be purified, where there is room for spontaneous interpretations such as events and where recreation is in the DNA of the park. In short; the Blue Lung of Kuurne."
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.

Last week I met Tom Beddard, a physicist turned web developer turned artist (and friendly guy). He creates fractals — those recursive shapes that infinitely repeat at every scale. They’re based on simple math, but they can create some amazing images.
Says Beddard: “I don’t seek any new mathematical insight into the resulting structures, it’s a purely aesthetic pursuit to scratch a creative itch. Part of the fascination with fractal exploration is when … amazing and completely unexpected structures can pop out and surprise you.”
Some of the fractals look like Gothic architecture. Some of them look like alien seed pods. All of them are mesmerizing. You can see lots more on Beddard’s flickr page. You can actually fly through the fractals and see them morphing in these videos. And now, thanks to a new app called Frax that Beddard helped develop, you can make fractals of your very own.
