Suggesting a world where you could in the future be wearing clothing fashioned from your own cells, Tissue engineered luxuries asks the question “does the potential to manipulate living organisms to grow future products represent a true utopian pursuit?”

About

Suggesting a world where you could in the future be wearing clothing fashioned from your own cells, Tissue engineered luxuries asks the question “does the potential to manipulate living organisms to grow future products represent a true utopian pursuit?” 

Exploring current research into growing future high-end fashion in the laboratory, Tissue engineered luxuries showcases in-progress experiments alongside propositions for what we may be able to grow in years to come. Presented as a fashion showroom counter, the installation introduces visitors to research that is currently happening in the labs at King's College, and asks them whether they would buy their own cultured couture.
