Energy Addicts by Naomi Kizhner
An invasive jewellery collection that converts kinetic energy from the body’s involuntary movements into electricity.
How can we as human bodies become a natural resource?
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."
"I wanted to explore the post-humanistic approach that sees the human body as a resource," she added.
The pieces would be embedded into the surface of the skin to capture the energy of subconscious movements, such as the flow of blood through the veins and blinking, transforming it into a useable energy resource.
