Textile designer, Nicole Jørgensen, has developed a textile collection for streetwear for Hummel Hive. The collection consists of woven and printed samples and has been given the title 'null:sense:automata'. The collection is the designer’s proposal for an upcoming trend in clothing textiles and has been inspired by space and the sci-fi universe.

The trend is characterised by themes such as artificial intelligence, existentialism, nothingness and uniqueness.Nicole Jørgensen has been greatly inspired by the film 'ExMachina', a science fiction film based on those themes as well as by the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The trend material combines artistic approaches with a commercial context, and based on the sample material the designs best suited for implementation are selected.
