Yuga is a set of wearable coping mechanisms designed for urban rhytms.
The continuation of the previous ‘Modes for Urban Moods’ series,
Yuga was developed while in residency at Ljudmila-Ljubljana Digital Media
Lab and within the frame of the 'Pépinieres européennes
pour jeunes artistes' programme.
Yuga consists of two wearable products: a belt and a handbag. Both use
sound as object, amplifying moods by the use of space.
The handbag helps managing feelings of frustration – of communication,
misunderstanding or alienation.
The belt deals with attention - it is a portable wearable accessory that
interacts with the environment by detecting physical proximity and movement.
According to the data collected it creates brief compositions –
that allow others to notice this wearable user’s presence or thus
the user him/herself to reclaim spontaneous attention and/or interact
with the surroundings.
Yuga is also a sonic and spatial translation of the physical transformations
that, eventually, occur when new connections are created.
