Travis Hanmer iGEAR

This site is a showcase for the art work of Travis Hanmer. Most of the work is from the iGEAR series - an ongoing multi media project, exploring isolation as a social event. Elements of fashion, graphic design and sports are used in this work to create a pseudo-consumer product called iGEAR - Personal Isolation Equipment.

This site will be updated on a regular basis with new images and news about various projects that are in the works. Questions and feedback are welcome and appreciated. You can contact me at travis@hanmerproject.com.
