Fraser Holden’s FraEye supports families living with MND as half of proceeds to go towards IMNDA. A new clothing collection, FraEye, has been launched in Ireland but with one unique difference – it has been designed entirely through eye tracking technology called ‘Eyegaze’.
53-year-old artist and former architect Fraser Holden from Rathfarnham in Dublin and originally from Australia, was diagnosed with MND in May 2022, with a two to five year lifespan. Having worked for 30 years as an architect providing for wife Orlagh and young daughter Oonagh, Fraser suddenly found himself unable to work due to the rapid progression of the disease.
"Hi, my name is FRaE I am a creator. In May 2022 I was diagnosed with MND with a two-to-five-year lifespan. For 30 years I worked as an architect providing for my wife and young daughter. Due to the rapid progression of the disease, I am not able to work. I have decided with the aid of eye tracking technology to produce artwork and products with my eyes and sell it to help my family. I am also donating 50% of all our profits to the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association, who are amazing in their support of both patients and their families going through a terrible journey. So, if you like what you see then grab yourself some cool products and know that I will be forever grateful. Cheers FRaE."
