    They are not only beautiful and inspiring but carry benefitial health qualities to them, as explained below :

    A Faraday cage, Faraday shield or Hoffman Box is an enclosure formed by conducting material or by a mesh of such material. Such an enclosure blocks out external static electric fields. Faraday cages are named after the English scientist Michael Faraday, who invented them in 1836.[1]

    A Faraday cage's operation depends on the fact that an external static electrical field will cause the electrical charges within the cage's conducting material to redistribute themselves so as to cancel the field's effects in the cage's interior. This phenomenon is used, for example, to protect electronic equipment from lightning strikes and other electrostatic discharges.

    Faraday cages cannot block static and slowly varying magnetic fields, such as Earth's magnetic field (a compass will still work inside). To a large degree though, they also shield the interior from external electromagnetic radiation if the conductor is thick enough and any holes are significantly smaller than the radiation's wavelength. For example, certain computer forensic test procedures of electronic components or systems that require an environment devoid of electromagnetic inte...

  • Recycled fashion/FAIR DESIGN

    Arts & Culture, Fashion Design

    Recycled_sandals_132_

    Tradition, innovation and sustainability Concepts that are amalgamated under the idea of FAIR DESIGN (c) . FAIR DESIGN (c) occurs when in the line of development and production of a specific design/object , the market profit generated is shared fairly between those involved in the making of it. This is particularly vital when it comes to preserve traditional makings in sustainable ways.

    Example :

    A = Designer - design/sketch/innovation - cost £ ? B = maker - manufacture/tradition - cost £40

    C = materials - materials / marketing design - cost £30

    D = Object total cost £ 70 + ?
    ? = market sale price ( set by designer or label ) For case study purpose , lets say it will be £ 210

    FAIR DESIGN A + B + C = D D = Total cost D % 2 - C = fair design A = £ 75 B = £ 75 C = £ 30

    I have been working under this concept for many years now . I would like your opinions in this matter .

    See you soon claudia
