Jewelry That Harvests Energy From Your Veins

Energy Addicts by Naomi Kizhner

Jewelry that harvests energy from your veins

"Naomi Kizhner, an industrial designer and graduate student from Hadassah College in Jerusalem, has designed jewelry that theoretically extracts energy from the wearers own body. The ‘speculative’ jewelry is embedded into the person’s veins and uses their blood to turn small wheels inside the device. 

As Naomi notes, the jewelry is not meant to be a practical energy source, but a discussion piece “about how far will we go to in order to ‘feed’ our addiction in the world of declining resources.”

The project is called ‘Energy Addicts’ and consists of three pieces of jewelry: The Blinker, The E-Pulse Conductor, and The Blood Bridge. On her website, she says “The work delves into a world in which there is a significant decline, which forces humanity to seek all the more forcefully for alternative ways of cultivating power. The suggested solution to the dilemma is based on the idea of biological wealth, harvesting energy directly from the body.”

Escape is set in a future where power-harvesting technologies are economically viable. Here, play is compulsory because schools have seen fit to offset the high cost of fossil fuels via energy harvested from the activity of children.
The cost of electricity becomes so inflated that electrically-powered play is in fact an endangered past time. To the point that the main character, Essie, steals energy from a fellow student so that she can later animate her own pretend world, which is… entirely dependent on electric power.

Free Ride
in here, we witness a day in the life of the protagonist Essie, where she’s a young girl on a mission, following her whims (and defending her honor) along the way. In the end, Essie is a timely reminder of 12-year-old Severn Cullis-Suzuki who, in 1992, spoke to U.N. delegates at Rio’s Earth Summit from a youth perspective, and “silenced the world for 6 minutes.”
