GER: Galvanic Extimacy Responder . Mood Sweater
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.
