Well fellow students of the trade, it is about that time for the very first time. Nothing is more special than the first time, so I will make sure I take my time with this. If you are still wondering what I am typing about, wonder no longer, I am referring to the first edition of "The Process". This is basically your tour through the thought process behind a certain design. Today we are going to be delving deep into the Photosynthesis design, as pictured above this blog.

So what exactly was going through my prefrontal cortex of my brain? It actually started when I was sitting in biology lab, we were of course talking about photosynthesis and how extremely important it is to our own liveliness. Which it is - if you have not realized this - just think about the fact that all the fresh air we breathe (sometimes fresh? really depends where you live: west side of Oahu very fresh, Southern Cali. not so fresh) and a good majority of our carbohydrates we eat are made during photosynthesis. We, the great and mighty heterotrophs direly and entirely depend on those pesky autotrophs.

Now that you realize how important that tree is outside of your window, I have to admit that I was day dreaming during the photosynthesis lecture. I know the subject is extremely important to life as we know it but since we had just started Enzymatic Clothing Designs, I was more occupied with the thoughts of a unique and fresh first design that will represent our ideology. So there I was sitting there in the cold lab trying to think of a good topic in science that can be redefined or seen through a contemporary perspective.

Then I remember that I needed a new digital camera. Sigh…

Ah ha! PHOTOsynthesis! The answer was right in front of me. In today’s age of fast internet connections, and 70 inch plasma screens and 10.2 MP SLR digital cameras, one of life’s most rudimentarily important processes is forgotten. Photosynthesis is not about carbon-dioxide and water being metabolized anymore, it is about how fast your shutter speed is, how big your LCD display is and what size you can print your pictures at without sacrificing resolution. Photosynthesis has been redefined, this is a new perspective on an old process. And so the first design of Enzymatic Clothing was synthesized.
