About:

Leonard Hill is a multi-disciplinary designer whose works have been inquiries into the body and possible relationships with technology. Starting with the idea of hybrid and chimeric forms, he looks further to ask questions about the types of relationships available between body and technology, and what those relationships infer about the human condition.Using fashion as a vehicle, Leonard Hill found new possibilities within fashions grammar, learning and reapproaching ideas within its discourse. Bringing in non-conventional processes, and centering them on fashion, he is excited by possible new horizons and innovations.A maker first and foremost, he finds great value within the physical process of pattern making, fitting and constructing, often gear switching between 'technician', and 'story teller'.

Laughing Gas asks questions about fashion’s relationship to technology, the current global climate crisis, the body, and new materiality. By blurring the lines between the body and machine, it suggests new relationships between form and functionality, suggestive of modern anxieties surrounding technology’s simultaneous responsibility for the climate crisis and its possibilities to provide new solutions. Concerned with notions of hybridity, Leonard Hill seeks to delve further into the types of relationships the body has with modification, to create discussions about the implications of machinic augmentation.
