The Morons' Blog
As part of the exhibition "The Anatomy of a Moment", the Morons premiered a new institute looking to archive audial fingerprints.
Previously, ACOM performed a simultaneous sonic experiment during an expedition to a deserted army base at the edge of civilisation on the north-east coast of Iceland, facing Greenland. A needle is taken to a balloon in order to explore a psychoacoustic now, and analysed through the process of recording the Impulse Response and computing the Convolution Reverb.
In creating future scenarios based on the implications of contemporary action and thought, ACOM hopes to shake up next-revision-will-solve-everything believers and incremental innovators.
In their bio-scent concept, the DNA of bacteria used in industial settings is modified to provide higher benefit in everyday life. Using bio-tech against ancient hygienic process, the user gets supposedly much-needed help in managing her scent footprint.
The next step after solving world hunger may consequently be to populate the uninhabitable. The techniques honed in food production are soon replicated and employed in fashion design and functional clothing.
Krepp-à-porter was presented at IASDR 2009. This is an image from the photo shoot in Seoul.
Krepp-à-porter is a dress able to adjust its shape and appearance. Determining of these factors is left to complex processes outside of the wearer’s control, which can alleviate or intensify feelings directed toward the worn item over time.
By providing adaptable garments, fashion could relate to the more organic prospect of an item of clothing with a lifespan. The stock market as the index of choice raises the issue of what really controls our appearance.
The Morons on a mission to find out more about user testing and user-driven innovation, people’s relationships to their electronic artefacts, while also exploring performance as data-gathering method.
