Industrial designer Naomi Kizhner has developed a concept for an invasive jewellery
collection that converts kinetic energy from the body’s involuntary movements
Naomi Kizhner designed the Energy Addicts accessories in response to the world’s
impending energy crisis, looking for an existing energy source that is yet to be
tapped in to.
“It interested me to imagine what would the world be like once it has experienced
a steep decline in energy resources and how we will feed our energy addiction,”
Kizhner told Dezeen.
“There are lots of developments of renewable energy resources, but the human body
is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive.”
“Technologically we are not too far away from these ideas becoming a
reality,” said Kizhner. “But practically speaking, will we be willing to
sacrifice our bodies in order to produce more energy?
My intention is to provoke a discussion.”
Jewelry isn’t just for adornment anymore. It can alert you of an incoming e-message, indicate your mood, and in this case, harness the power of your body to create energy. Just spooky or a whole new way of looking at jewelry?
