“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
― Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law
“Any technology, no matter how primitive, is magic to those who don’t understand it.”
― Florence Ambrose, Technical Engineer, Starship Savage Chicken
It begins with a cooperative thought experiment, a co-creative expression of culture as a technology the better to manifest the material. So, our intentional common sense is an expanded design language called Participatory Action Research, Design, Development and together we will use it in bringing to life utterly Surrealistic Reference Sheets and Fursuits. Fursuits, seemingly magical Furry Fandom Fursuits for anthropomorphic costumed play.
Technical apparel has evolved far beyond its Science Fiction Convention and Comic Book origins, discovering in the late 1980s, a community life all its own as Cosplay (Costumed Play) and subgenres the Furry Fandom a diverse community of anthropomorphic arts and costumed play.
The ArtScience vision of ΘWΛ Ðesign means innovative material science and fabrication techniques in unusual combinations with the practicality of biological PPE features to maximize user safety and enjoyment in a volatile world changed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We Sing The Body Electric and Therianthropic, the Greek Theríon (θηρίον), meaning “wild animal” or “beast”, and Anthrōpos (Ἄνθρωπος), meaning “human being”, a very ancient word, a spiritual word for our otherworldly mytho-mystic shapes born of the Primordial Void energies of 🜁 Air, 🜂 Fire, 🜃 Earth, 🜄 Water.
With virtual production tools, we can connect, resonate, play together, we model and demonstrate to communicate, to share and affirm the principles of cooperative community through collaborative action design, and so hope to significantly contribute to the prosperity and happiness of the performing art communities of Cosplay and Furry Fandom.
“You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
