loneliness

loneliness: an emotional state in which a person experiences a powerful feeling of emptiness and isolation, an instant of being lonely. unfrequented by people; desolate; without companions; solitary.

my project explores the state of loneliness and how to cope with it. the artifact, a plush wool pendant, is equipped with a light that, when squeezed, glows. the pendant is meant to provide comfort, similar to that of a touchstone or nightlight, and is worn as a necklace so it always stays within reach.

the internal circuit is simple: a 3V coin cell battery is attached to a white LED which is then attached to a simple push button. when the button is pressed the light comes on, and when the button is released the light turns off.

the circuit is wrapped and folded into a small compact bunch that was inserted into a wool felted ball, then felted closed.
