2015 - Industrial Design Undergraduate Thesis
Garments - Cotton Jersey, Interaction - Reporter App

This project talks about clothing as holders of memories, as aids in asserting our identity, and as representations of a certain self-understanding. Now, this “self-understanding is supported by a variety of life-tracking devices that collect personal data in which we can reflect. This project uses data collection as a method of personalizing our everyday clothing. An interaction with technology that supports introspection for self understanding then eventually for self expression through objects, in this case; clothing. Objects fulfill the need for us to reflect, understand, and archive ourselves.
