self surveillance to beware your own ass of spectators

by amy khoshbin alias tinyscissors: when your „coin slot“ is exposed, this wearable hip-pack vibrates that area to make you aware of it. you decide to cover up, or let it all hang out.





tech summary: using a Lilypad Arduino, vibrating motor, and a photoresistor (measures the amount of light in your coin slot), you will make a wearable apparatus. when the photoresistor/your coin slot is covered, the hip-pack is at rest, when it/your coin slot is exposed, this triggers the vibrating motor to start vibrating & let the user know.

It is addressing issues about physical and global/technological presence, social networks and collected mementos in our everyday life. The vest is created to be borrowed by the audience for an individual long term use. -You can "wear" the hearts of your close network of selected persons on you, and observe the presence of these people in physical and virtual space.
