SUN+ is a research project into human behaviour towards the sun. We need (and we love) the sun but overexposure can be seriously harmful. We have started out with taking stock of the alternative ways we can use for a healthy and clean life in the sun. As part of the project, we are also exploring the use of textile-based, wearable sunscreen to replace harmful chemicals. Rethinking the physicality of sunscreen seems key, if we want to life a happy life in the sun.
