"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.
Created to contribute to the 5 Days for The Homeless initiative, The Fortune Project is a research/process based project thats intent is to break down the us/them barrier with people living on the streets. How can we facilitate positive interaction through the act of giving? Thoughts, opinions and philosophies were collected from homeless individuals across Montreal, and disseminated through homemade fortune cookies as an attempt to share their experiences with a larger public, who is then encouraged to write a message of good fortune back in order to continue the cycle.
We categorize people based on their outward presentation, without consideration of who they might be underneath their veneer of constructed identity. This project seeks to show the vulnerable, raw, human self, unbiased, with none of the regular social cues in place.
Re:Action is a conceptual garment that explores and illustrates humankinds attempt to dominate and control the natural world. This is done through creating an endlessly malleable garment, which is given shape by both the wearers’ manipulation of it, as well as its interactions with the external environment.
