–SENSOREE founder, future concepts designer—endeavors to craft phenomenal technology to enhance and expand physical embodiment. She has a background in dance, kinetic costumes, and in physical therapies as a Dance Medicine Specialist. With her MFA in Interaction Design from California College of the Arts, 2010, she became curious as to how wearable computers could be therapeutic, emotive, and enhance sensory awareness.
SENSOREE Therapeutic Biomedia spawned from her thesis design research to create wearable technology to augment Sensory Processing Disorder, a condition which ranges from ADHD to autism. She currently runs SENSOREE design lab–an organic confluence of artists and engineers who work with futuristic fabrics made from sustainable materials embedded with sensitive technologies. She is honored to have presented works at technology and healthcare conferences, in fashion shows, museums, and future visionary platforms.
Inspired by the phrase, That gave me goosebumps. Did you feel it too? The AWElectric animates the emotionally based goosebumps, amplifies them, and shares the feeling to another.
AWElectric pau de deux is a duet design with biomedia (bio-responsive animating) that reads the emotional peak of awe, a subtle mix of wonder and fear, with a series of biosensors. Then, the sensation is animated and amplified with inflatable 3d printed Goosebump Fractals. Next, this sensation is sent to the receiver design via AudioTactile fabric that plays the frequency to induce the rush of goosebumps up the spine and down the arms in the other person. AWElectric shares the feeling and could also be used as a training tool to repattern the sensation.
