Wearable Weapons awaken the power of vulnerability.
Wearable Weapons is currently building visual and interactive wearable costumes for an entertainer or singer to wear during a performance or music video.
Right now we are focusing on building a new series of collars with hacked Violet Wands connected to software that pulses mini-electrical arcs through voice interaction. This is part of a larger series of interactive costumes built with different forms of electricity, fire, sound sensors, open source software, hardware, plant fibers, confiscated scissors from airport security, recycled razor blades, and zip ties.
You might ask... and what are Violet Wands?
Violet Wands are electro medical devices recommended by Edgar Cayce as a healing tool and invented by Nicola Tesla. Violet Wands are also modern, electrical, kink or highly erotic electro-stimulation tools. They are used for the application of low current, high voltage (min 25 kV to max 65 kV), high-frequency, electricity to the body. Violets Wands are sold both to the police department and the S&M community. The wands have a variety of intensity levels that do anything from burn to arouse the end receiver.
