GER: Galvanic Extimacy Responder . Mood Sweater
emotiv display

GER is an externalized intimacy — a display of the personal in the world — the interface by which we identify with the other so that we may gain greater insight of the self. Inspired by Jacques Lacan's "extimacy," the GER visually displays the wearer’s emotional state for both the self and other. A Galvanized Skin Response (GSR) tracks the body's responses and projects the palette of red for excited or nervous and blue for calm and relaxed.

The shirt design came from the concept of listening to the self as well as substituting/enhancing the vocal display.
Focusing on synaesthesia, the wearer "hears" the visual biofeedback and the collar masks the voice but translates telemetric data to the other.

Seconding the technology and sensor question. Its a great idea, I love working with GSR, and nice design on the shirt, was there a reason for the shape/design of the shirt and collar?

It is a Galvanized Skin Response (GSR) which is traditionally used for a lie detector test. It reads your nervousness (sweat level) and responds with graph data. Then, that was translated to an LED visual display.
