For my first idea, I thought about how advances in technology have invaded our privacy. With cameras in many public spaces and advancing facial recognition software, many people fear being tracked everywhere they go. So my first idea was a wearable that inflates to hide the wearer’s face.

For my second idea, I thought more about growth and something. I had the idea of the tuba players being covered in many small inflatable flowers. The flowers start of inflated and curled up, and as the tuba players breathe during the the performance the flowers deflate and “bloom”. Throughout the performance, more and more flowers deflate until the players are covered in flowers.
