The Unseen’s latest collection features gemstones that map brain activity #WearableWednesday
We’ve covered the Unseen‘s gorgeous pieces before and their latest is the coolest yet.
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 Lab grown SWAROVSKI Spinel stones, enhanced with T H E U N S E E N Magick.
Over 4000 Black Spinel were chosen and cloned 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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
