F.R.O.G.: Enhanced Gear for Environmental Researchers

Earth’s natural patterns are becoming less predictable and more extreme, making those at the frontier particularly vulnerable. This project is the result of intensive research and observation from environmental researchers with intensive experience conducting field work in remote subarctic regions. Given the laborious nature of the profession, this project presents the opportunity to imagine what else might be possible outside of current benchmarked functional clothing and the future of wearable technologies.

About the Designer

Mark Connolly, Humber College

The way people move, think, feel, create, and interact with one another and their respective environments has been and always will be incredibly fascinating to me. I strive to use my scientific background in Geography and creative thinking to improve people’s wellbeing through good design practices.
