SHE BON is a collection of wearable augments, capable of sensing various forms of the wearer's bio-data as input, in order to indicate their level of excitement with electronic and mechanical devices as output.
We should be more comfortable talking to one another about sexuality and intimacy. To help normalize a general dialogue about sex, I'm documenting the creation of a series of wearables that will act as a prosthesis for signaling my level of arousal!
I want the overall dialogue surrounding the project to be honest, accessible, and as open as possible. I encourage the exchange of thoughts and ideas, as well as participation.
The main platform of this project is open source! So if any of this interests you, I invite you to create an augment of your own!
How would you use your bio-data to communicate an otherwise invisible aspect of your being?
I hope that if you choose to log and studying your own bio-feedback, the act of focusing attention on new aspects of your body will help you know yourself better than ever before.
I hope that if you choose to create your own wearable augmentation to indicate your physical status, you shed any stigma that may have ever been associated with your sexual nature!
I want humanity to take ownership over its most basic right, without shaming, victimizing, or feeling embarrassment.
The concept of "CYBER PUNK" has remained a stylistic projection of a near future. I believe however, the future is now. It's time to start defining cyber punk functionally in our own reality! I choose to do so with my lifestyle, and practice as an artist.
What is humanity to spetku? Electronic lady-boners and robotic offspring, of course! Check out my other posthuman projects:

The Hot Spot is an investigation of how a proper "tushie squeeze" might be replicated mechanically in order to produce sufficient "thigh gap" between the wearer's legs in proportion to fluctuations in their body temperature.
The Propeller Pasties are devices which adhere to the breasts. An IR sensor tracks growth in the girth of the nipple and triggers propellors on the outside of the pasties to spin at a speed in relation to growth.
The three support gears that turn the central hub are modified with round "paddles" which stroke and knead the nipple as the propeller spins.
The Beat Box is a peripheral which resembles a fillet of salmon. It is worn over the pelvic region, and is capability of reading the wearer's heart rate and indicating an elevation in beats per minute with audible whispers through a small speaker aimed inward towards the wearer's pelvic bone.
The Pulse Pack is a wearable breakout board! It is the enclosure which houses the main brain and central processing unit of the SHE BON project, called the "PULSE".
