Final Year Project(s)
Living in a fast-paced world, the basic need to connect with others both spiritually and physically has taken greater importance. Under the pretense of meeting societal expectations to be sociable or meeting up to any other forms of expectations, lies a group of people concealing their unseen and neglected emotions. My product(s) would create a soothing environment for the wearer through acupressure massage while also providing concealment through revelation. This could then create a point of dialogue between two parties, enabling the wearer to cope and interact at the same time.
Thus, this eyewear and jewellery combination conceals the wearer’s self-conscious tendencies of being unable to maintain eye contact with the covert placement of an acupressure point probe. The pressure and contact on the acupressure point are intended to reduce the anxiety of the wearer while acting as part of the jewellery.
