Final Project Sketch – Weaver



Everyone is the subject of fear. From common apprehension about making it to a location at a certain time to full blown fantasies of what lurks in the darkness, everyone experiences nervousness. Sometimes, this uncertainty can prompt us to make more cautious decisions and lead safer lives, but other times, such fear and insecurity can weigh us down.

The weaver is a device that visualizes that fear by wrapping sticky goo covered thread around a light source, eventually blacking it out. The light will pulse in time with a person’s heart beat, symbolizing the strain that these inhibitions can cause.
