H+ and The Defiant

“THE FUTURE IS ALREADY HERE, EMBRACE IT.”

– Bacall Michaels

H+ Magazine  it is teaming with UK based fashion magazine Defiant and will be guest editing articles for the magazine.

What is Defiant? A “Neoteric Magazine for Futurists”, with an Interactive Grey Book E-commerce site selling leading edge fashion and technology items.

Through our work with the Defiant we hope to reach a new audience for transhumanism and also to influence designers to start putting these ideas into practice.

Transhumanism suggests novel directions for the design of systems, tools, and objects. Fashion, by its very nature, is our most intimate technology including items we wear and carry, that come into direct contact with our skin and body. What we wear is a signal about what we know and who we are.

And NBIC technologies will change the very nature of clothing and penetrate all aspects of the design process.

We’ll be talking about clothing that blurs the line between wearer and worn, clothing that senses and computes, fibers that are bioengineered and clothes that incorporate active living biological elements, nanotech clothes that never need washing, and much more.

Recently relaunched with a new look, our first joint issue with The Defiant is centered on the theme of “bioculture” and biotechnology.

“On the cusp of divulging in biotechnologies, we’ve discovered a pathway to biotopian sustainability. We are not only are evolving our surroundings through our own means, we are evolving ourselves into another superior species. The world of tomorrow is dictated by the eco-conscious post-human.”

 – Bacall Michaels, Creative Director & Editor, Defiant
