Sound Reactive Collar

Using mini LED’s, a sound sensor, and laser cut leaher, this collar mimics the sound of the environment by blinking at the rate of conversation. Taking inspiration from the past from a medieval gorget (neck armor) and a Victorian bertha, I wanted to create a piece that felt both delicate and protective all while making a”digital sequin”, the futures answer to fashion’s modern day sequin-the tiny plastic or metal object used to catch light.
