My name is Hilary Hayes and I have just finished my third year studying Industrial Design at OCAD in Toronto. During the winter, I began creating wearable technology projects and have decided to pursue my thesis is soft circuitry. Breathe was my first major project.
Breathe 3.0 2009-2010 Lilypad Arduino, temperature sensor, conductive thread, bright white LEDs, purple wool yarn
The Breathe Project is focused on creating awareness of our own breath and the breath of others as a way of reminding and being reminded of the delicacy and life force of each other and of ourselves. As the wearer exhales while wearing the scarf, a glow sequence is initiated. Love, Hilary Hayes
