I care

wearable design

2015

"I care" is a pair of wrist and forearm splints that serve to communicate through several sources of energy. "I care" splints function through a wireless signal and an interaction between wearers. "I care" explores the effects of holistic and alternative medicine, juxtaposed against aesthetics of modern healthcare. The wearable technology references light therapy and reflexology. "I care" serves as an extension of the self; a reminder that our body can be a vessel for the intangible, and a centre for empathy, communication and ultimately for healing.
