Project Reefstone


Concept

Project Reefstone is a data-generative garment that visualizes the dramatic change of global temperature in the last 40 years.  Each piece of fabric panel is laser cutted according to the global land-ocean temperature index data provided by NASA. The form resembles the bleached coral reefs, and are decaying due to the rise of global temperature. There is beauty in its form and decay, but it also illuminates the dangers of a rapidly declining ecosystem. We want to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and tell its story through a high concept and data-driven garment. Model: Nour Chamoun, video by Yi Yang.
