Leider (?) nur ein Designkonzept: Frau Tina Gorjanc möchte Menschenleder mit der DNA aus dem Haar des verstorbenen Fashion-Designers Alexander McQueen züchten und daraus Zeugs nähen. Ein Patent-Antrag für ihr Verfahren läuft grade. (via Jason Kottke)
The Pure Human range uses DNA sourced from labels in McQueen's first collection, Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims, which contain locks of the designer's hair housed in perspex. After extracting the genetic material and implementing it into a cell culture, Gorjanc's process involves harvesting the cells into skin tissue. This would be tanned and processed into human leather with the view to using it in bags, jackets and backpacks.
Gorjanc filed a patent application in May 2016, which would cover the material made from McQueen's genetic information using this particular chain of processes. "The Pure Human project was designed as a critical design project that aims to address shortcomings concerning the protection of biological information and move the debate forward using current legal structures," Gorjanc said.
