The past few decades have seen climate change spiral at an alarming rate, permanently damaging Earth’s ecosystems. 2136 is a project which imagines what the future might look like if we allow this to continue. Taking cues from some of the remarkable adaptations found in nature, 2136 explores how humans might evolve in a similar way, imagining how some adaptations might manifest themselves in a textile context to help the wearer adapt to their environment. Focussing on material, structure, and systemic movement, this is an exploratory collection which imagines what the future of textiles, and humanity, might look like.
