Interactive Jewelry

This new interactive jewelry is the result of a collaboration between the Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin and Anke Loh. An acceleration sensor measures kinetic activity, converting energy to varying light patterns that respond to the wearer’s changing movements. The necklace is also available without the electronic parts.

The LED jewelry has been exhibited at EXEMPLARY: 150 Years of the MAK, Vienna, Austria; at the Sullivan Galleries, SAIC Chicago, Faculty Projects; at ADM Gallery, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Sense and Sensuality: The Art & Aesthetics of Wearable Technology; at the FashionTECH Conference, Runway Show at 82Mercer, NYC; and at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.
