C2H4 18 FALL/WINTER "SYSTEM ON CARBON" LOOKBOOK

The name System on Carbon comes from the System on Chip term in computer science.All computer system is built on binary numbers (0 and 1) and information is stored on chips.We found that human being actually has very similar features to computers.Composed of mostly carbon and oxygen, human body is built on the system of DNA which is coded with four nitrogen-containing nucleobases(cytosine [C] ,guanine [G],adenine [A] or tymine [T] ).Therefore,just like computer system,human body can also be broken down into a series of codes.This leads to questions that are more philosophical about the human origin and existence. Maybe human being are just a different type of machine that someone else created.
