To explore the connection between human and digital interaction, I create expressive digital wearable designs that are extensions of oneself. The expressiveness of this wig is produced by its various anthropomorphic qualities. Interactive wigs not only offer wearers an opportunity to alter their appearance with a new hairstyle, but also enable them to reveal their emotions or dramatically conceal their identity, creating theatrical encounters. In this way, the wearers can be more openly expressive through bodily interaction.
