CitySkin is a reactive suit which gathers environmental and sensory information about the city and the wearer(s) as they explore the urban landscape. Designed by Freyja Sewell and Stephanie Singer, it is intended to make the invisible aspects of the environment visible to us and for this process to encourage a new way of thinking about our environments.

Our body’s are in constant communication with the environment – with the air we breathe in and out, the water we drink and excrete, the pace the city exists at and our own internal pace, the sounds we hear and the sounds we make. This interaction between body and environment can be nourishing, replenishing, suffocating, destructive, inspiring and all things in between.
