Commuter awareness by night time drivers can be dramatically enhanced through the use of retroreflective material or LEDs on accessories worn on pedestrian's major joints
(neck/shoulders, ankles/knees and wrists) creating a clear vision of biological motion.
I am a MFA Design and Technology student at Parsons The New School for Design. I have a particular interest in the combination of fashion and new media technology and how these two fields inform one another when given the opportunity. Curiosity and exploration in these fields has led me to a pretty diverse background in a range of fields: knitting, pattern constructing, soft circuits, wearable technology, fashion as safety, physical computing, and design to name a few. I enjoy experimenting with combining fashion and technology for the pleasure of the public. It is an area that is often unexplored and I will continue to develop clothing and accessories that follow my findings for the need in the field of fashionable technology.
