“Sobering numbers show that 1 in 3 women have experienced physical or sexual violence, mostly by an intimate partner; about 120 million girls have been forced into intercourse or other sexual acts at some point in their lives; and 133 million women and girls have undergone female genital mutilation.”
A collaboration with Michell Johanna Cardona, ITP Alumnus, and NYU adjunct instructor.
Enabling Wearables is 3D printed jewelry, and a visualization created from UN Women database, which shows the percentage of women who have suffered sexual abuse from their partners across the globe.

The project is the final project of the course Sculpting Data Into Everyday Objects, taught by Professor Esther Cheung. This course, from the Interactive Media Arts program at New York University, challenged students to develop their own “non-linear design process” through combining programming, 3D modeling and digital fabrication technology toward the making of an everyday data object.
