Volume: First Design and Prototype
About the Work:
“Volume” is a wearable tech garment to be worn around the neck and shoulders. The garment is audio activated and reacts the volume of the wearer’s voice by expanding the volume of space that it and the wearer occupy; the shoulders of the piece expand based on the volume of the wearer’s voice. This work engages with the ideas of vulnerability and both shared and personal space. This is garment will be made for the “Urban Woman” who gleefully demands attention and space; who delights in taking up space.
