Glacial is a wearable technology project in collaboration with Birce Ozkan. Inspired by the melting glaciers due to global warming, Glacial is a conceptual headpiece created out of arduinos, LED strips, plastic canvas and cellophane.
The glowing LED lights accentuate the sharp contours and shimmering colors of the headpiece. Envisioned as a performance piece, the LEDs light less frequently over time, symbolizing the gradual disappearance of the glacier as the wearer is left with an empty skeleton.
