'Primitive Streak' is a science-art collaboration elucidating 10 key events in human embryonic development by artist/designer Helen Storey (London College of Fashion) and biologist Kate Storey (University of Dundee).
Helen and Kate collaborated in 1997 to create a series of fashion/textile designs, spanning the first 1,000 hours of human life.
14 years on, Helen and Kate have collaborated again to produce new dresses, which explore the science behind the development and function of the lungs.
The film 'Breathe' has been produced as a part of this new collaboration, showcasing the new White Lung Dress and referencing the 'first breath' of a new born child.
