SENSOREE crafts wearable technology and interactive installations promoting extimacy or externalized intimacy.

SENSOREE therapeutic monitors the body and responds with visual perception and tactile feedback. This new form of social media communicates to ourselves as well as another how we are feeling. These emotion based designs promote body awareness, insight, spontaneity, and fun!

We work with futuristic fabrics made from sustainable materials impregnated with sensitive technologies. In this way, we explore the Sensory Computer Interface (SCI) – tools to enhance proximity, intimacy, telepathy, intuition, and humor between human and machine.

SENSOREE began as MFA design research to create wearable technology to augment Sensory Processing Disorder, a condition which ranges from ADHD to autism.

The next care to be taken, in respect of the Senses, is a supplying of their infirmities with Instruments, and as it were, the adding of artificial Organs to the natural… and as Glasses have highly promoted our seeing, so ‘tis not improbable, but that there may be found many mechanical inventions to improve our other senses of hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. ~ Robert Hooke. 1665

The body reveals what words cannot. ~ Martha Graham

All ideas, all mental images, all emotions reveal themselves physically. ~ Augusto Boal

He who looks outside dreams. He who looks within awakens. ~ Jung

Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and the knowledge that’s OK with them. ~ Alain de Botton

 The future is intimate. We want to be closer to ourselves. ~ kristin neidlinger
