Earplugs for technoparty
As part of the On the Body task, I created earplugs that reduce the volume of surrounding sound without disturbing its quality. Visually, they are designed to act as jewellery and complement and develop the outfit at a techno party. This solves the problem of young people not wanting to wear bad-looking earplugs, yet spending sometimes up to 8 hours in a room where the music is too loud. The shape of the product refers to the idea of a parasitic fungus that controls the brain of its prey and forces it to do things that are not natural to it. Techno is repetitive in its own way and can take over a person and make them feel trance-like. The product is modeled on a 3D scan of my head and then printed from resin.
