Wear & Seek – Camouflage for a Virtual Landscape

Wear & Seek is a collection of garments that reveals its complete aesthetic spectrum only when perceived with the help of machine-vision. With this performance-based installation, London-based design collective Peut-Porter present a designerly response to enhanced vision systems and investigate the impact and potentials for aesthetic usage of those technologies. Inspired by famous camouflage patterns such as the woodland design, newly conceived patterns aim to welcome a new era of disguise wear whilst building upon the socio-cultural and political history of camouflage garments. 

The performance is developed in collaboration with dancer and choreographer Lucy Suggate of Siobhan Davis Dance.
