I think the scariest thing ever might be hearing this played in a cornfield.

I remember this show. So cool.
Hussein Chalayan F/W 1998 ‘Panoramic’ | Part 1
Panoramic (autumn/winter 1998) was one of Chalayan’s most dramatic fashion collections. The collection culminated in the idea of infinity, which was expressed in a surreal cityscape of geometric shapes and distorted images. Chalayan created an environment that eradicated perimeters and built environments and blurred cultural boundaries, camouflaging the body by merging it into the surroundings or multiplying its image in mirrors placed at intersecting angles. The models were distorted into generic shapes and unified by architectural proportions; cones were fixed to the tops of their heads, while their faces and bodies were swathed in black to obscure their identities. The purpose behind these dramatic silhouettes was to create a non-distinct cultural/ethnic identity. As Chalayan explored the idea of representing the nature in the collection, he broke it down into its most basic graphic representation - pixels. Body and clothing were then merged into digital landscape, which was recreated in enlarged cube-shaped pixels carried by a column of models clad in sombre bodysuits as they processed slowly down the catwalk. The overall effect was that of experiencing spatial geometry created by bodies and cloth, interchanging the basis of fashion’s relationship to the body and its surroundings.
