SENSOREEs GER: Galvanic Extimacy Responder, MOOD SWEATER is an emotive fashion that interprets emotions and displays mood instantly as an interactive light display. The GER: MOOD SWEATER sensors read excitement levels and translate the data into a palette of affective colors. The high collar, bowl positioned with LEDs reflects onto the self for instant biofeedback and acts as a tele-display or external blush for the other. Located around the larynx, the visual interface replaces speaking, as the wearer’s truths are instantly expressed with color.
Based on the technology of a classic lie detector test, SENSOREE has crafted a unique wearable soft sensor design called the Galvanic Extimacy Reponder (GER). The design promotes “extimacy” – externalized intimacy.

Ina Jang is a Korean photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. With regard to her latest series ‘In a World without Words’ she explains: ‘I make images that are minimal and two-dimensional by layering people, places and things to precisely execute ideas, but with the intention of discarding information. The photographs are often figurative and unidentified, casting a suspicion upon the photograph’s agenda.’ Jonas Cuénin placed Ina Jang’s work ‘somewhere between fashion and fine art, at the junction of photography, drawing, graphic design and sculpture.’

The backing track (0.00 to 2.03 mins) each musician composed and performed their parts to and the motion-reactive visuals were also created by Joshua Young.
Process: The video musicians used the backing track as a basis to compose their own parts and performed them live during filming, while simultaneously controlling the motion-reactive visuals behind them (via Wi-Fi MIDI messages sent from the AUUG Motion Synth to laptop software and back-projected onto the screen behind them). Their estimated practice times can be found at auug.com/musician-composition-and-practice-time.

Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.
