Water rather than air carries sound in designer Rocco Giovannoni'sInmergo headphones, which promise rich audio even for people who are hard of hearing.
“A 2019 graduate of the Royal College of Art's MA in Design Products, Giovannoni designed the soft silicone headphones to improve upon current bone-conduction audio technology.”
Like other bone-conduction headphones on the market, his design bypasses the eardrum and conveys sound as vibrations through the bones of the skull, directly to the cochlea — the "hearing" part of the inner ear.
Unlike any other device on the market, it does so via waterproof speakers that are fully immersed in liquid and then sealed in a pliable membrane. This membrane sits against a person's skin, transmitting sound vibrations through touch.

Park Life draws on the very British history of the Pleasure Garden, at its most popular in the 18th century.
“Conceptually, Park Life draws on the very British history of the Pleasure Garden, at its most popular in the 18th century. According to Lee, they were typically places for the aristocracy and the middle class to see music, art, fashion and dine and drink. Like an architectural display, they were designed with miniature waterways, mazes and pagodas. Although it was a period of high culture they became infamous for facilitating debauchery.” - continue reading on @habitusliving

Butler is a Nigerian born, London based multidisciplinary artist whose practice focuses on the intentional removal of informational excess through a subtle, minimalistic approach. His work fixates on the significance of clarity in content, while upholding an uncompromising attitude towards achieving figurativism in a minimalistic art form. Butler grasps at the purity of objects in their rawest form, depicting just how possible it is to dissect the physical personality, without eliminating the elementary aspects of allure that many contemporary individuals relate to.
FIRMAVERA is the artistic practice of Natalia Romanova, based in London. Her product design ethos stems from her soviet childhood’s constructivist heritage and her experience as an industrial designer. She is influenced by an appreciative knowledge of engineering and industrial processes as well as the radical honesty of utilitarian and brutalism architecture.
The unpretentious beauty found in these disciplines informs her artistic practice which expands into experimentation through shape and perception. The frequent use of ceramics is a suitable canvas to convey a truthfulness to material while elevating the functional aesthetic into objects that are celebrations of that raw utopian vision.
Exposed overstructures, pattern repetitions and modularity hint at mass-production techniques and a brutalist rejection of ornaments. Ethical and functional intentions incidentally become malleable materials. The objects of FIRMAVERA are therefore playing with the notion of form and function, reconsidering their relationship in order to question the traditional norm of beauty.
This innovative art project by Leni Dothan was prompted by the desire to raise a stronger awareness towards the invisible enemy that is air pollution. Together with the Chemistry department of UCL, Leni created these photographs on 200 Portland stones using London’s air pollution
Texts by Marine Tanguy MTArt Agency
This project is a perfect conceptual and chemical symbiosis between science and art, aiming for awareness and a response to air pollution through public art in between London and Portland Isle. During the b-side biennale, the artist will transform the Verne High Angle Battery into a rehab centre for air polluted sculptures made in London.
These sculptures will be the outcome of an ongoing research based collaboration with Dr. Raul Quesada-Cabrera, expert in photochemistry at UCL, prof. Andrea Sella and Sana Ali. Together, they developed a pollution-reactive material in UCL’s Chemistry lab.
Leni Dothan will bring these polluted sculptures to Portland for them to be cleaned while on display at the Verne High Angle Battery for nine days. The audience will witness the colour changes on the sculptures as the artworks react to a healthier context. The sculptures will become a powerful tool for public awareness towards the growing issue that is air pollution, especially in cities.
