[gallery] Media artists Anja Hertenberger, Barbara Pais, and Danielle Roberts designed and developed this conceptual piece called e-Pressed. Inspired by acupressure therapy, it senses and visualizes our emotional states in ourselves and the people around us. Here's how they describe the project: "These days people feel vulnerable when showing so called negative emotions, such as grief, sadness, pain, fear, anger. We want to make space for these emotions and to communicate them in a new way. Our shirt, e-Pressed is a new communication layer for handling the vulnerability caused by these negative emotions.
By sensing and visualizing inner states, e-Pressed creates awareness in the wearer and in others. Awareness is followed by possible interaction, which is stimulated by light visuals. Areas originating from acupressure therapy will light up and invite the wearer and others to press on them, relieving tension and stimulating well-being." Continue reading on e-Pressed.
