Showing the outcome of his year-long investigation as Fashion Space Gallery’s Designer in Residence, Adam Peacock presents Genetics Gym S/S18, a collection of re-designed aspirations in the form of altered bodies, modified by using speculations in forecast genetic technology. Instead of designing wearable objects, the collection invited a gaze onto the intricacies of human validation within the twenty-first century.

A body-centric designer and artist, Peacock’s design-research studio The Validation Junky looked at new roles of technology in society, observing the vices of stripped back human nature and imagining characters by exploring the potential of emerging human genetic and artificial intelligence technologies in fashion design and fashion photography.
