Brain&Beast was born in Barcelona in 2010 at the hands of Ángel Vilda. His garments are proposed as games, puzzles, apparently structurally simple hieroglyphics which correspond to complex equations in which color and material form parts of codes in which nothing is random. Brain&Beast proposes mixing garments which combine emotion and reason, with a very strong influence from contemporary culture without leaving out oodles of sophistication and a serious sense of humor.

COLLECTION -   / TALISMAN / Aesthetic Torsion Nº1

Unus mundus, literally a world, or a single world, is a term that refers to the concept of a unified underlying reality from which everything emerges and to which everything returns, popularized by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung and related to his time with the concepts of archetype and synchronicity.
Archetype refers to a construct proposed by Carl Gustav Jung to explain all those dreamlike images and fantasies that correlate with special similarity to universal motifs belonging to religions, myths, legends, etc. It would be those autonomous ancestral images that are the basic constituents of the collective unconscious.
Synchrony is understood, according to Jung, in the simultaneity of two events linked by meaning but in an acausal way, a way that cannot be explained, but with a charge of meaning for those who observe them, prompting the conclusion that there is an intimate connection between the individual and its surroundings, exercising an attraction that ends up creating coincident circumstances, which are usually related to chance, coincidence, luck or even magic. Like Jung, the Nobel Prize in Physics Wolfgang Pauli claimed that synchronicity was one of the expressions that characterized the Unus Mundus, a unified reality from which everything that exists emerges and to which it returns.
Thus, / TALISMAN / is a succession of archetypes that work like amulets that promote synchronous events, making the underlying and enigmatic reality come to the surface; Talismans used for the purpose of attracting fortune and turning destiny into success as well as ironizing about bad luck.
