''PRESENTATION BASE OF ANTHROPOSOPHY''
Latest revision as of 23:14, 30 September 2022
For my project under the Term Observe Experiment Connect I build a device that
helps me to understand and perceive
my environment better. For this purpose, sensors (light, gas, temperature)
are sewn into a WEARABLE which will collect specific values
from different circumstances. I measure my
own electrical currents to observe whether
different circumstances have an influence on
my body. when a intersection of the measured data occurs, it will be experienced (vibration).
In many cultures, as in science, it is believed
that where we are and the circumstances of
that place affect our body energy, posture
and soul. The more consciously we move
within it, the more our spirit is able to evolve
and see and understand the world in a
divine way. I have been dealing with
spiritual questions and doubts for a long
time. With these observations I hope for
small revelations. as well in the time where I
am creating and moving.
Due to my personal upbringing in the antroprosophic movement, I was inspired by it. The project is created around the believes of it.
This Device will be made out of five components:
Electronics that measure the energy flowing through my body and sensors that collect data from the enviorment
Jewlery that forms the end of the "Body-Sensor"
A vest/harness to store the electronics and powersource
A dress that is inspired by the belives of the antroprosophical movement
A output that demonstrates the connecting moment
Design and Concept Phase
Electronics and Arduino Code
To measure the environmental values, a light sensor, a gas sensor and a temperature sensor are connected to an Arduino Nano. The values of these are compared with those of the ground sensor (Sensor by Martin Howse). Then, when these values overlap, the output, a vibration is triggered at a vibration module.
#define vibOutPin 4 //Vibrationsmotor als Konstante "vibOutPin" an Digitalpin 4
int bodyPin = A0;
int lightPin = A1;
int tempPin = A2;
int gasPin = A3;
int bodyVal,lightVal,tempVal,gasVal = 0; //Variablen "___Val" global definieren
int tempDiff,lightDiff,gasDiff = 0; //Variablen für Differenz zwischen "bodyVal" und "___Val"
To store the electronics a vest is needed that requires these factores:
Easy to take on/off
Subtle, non-dominant aesthetics
(Avoid Gender association)
Flexible for movement but still resistant
Does need the measurements of the electronics but must be flexible for sudden change of electronics
Additionally a bracelet is made to attach and wear the vibration motor. Because the light sensor should not be influenced by my shadows a headband is necessary.
The design of the dress is based on the teachings and views of Anthroprosophy. The silluette imitates the, that of the clothing of the Euritmy and that of the ancient Greeks. Also it is cut wide and airy, allowing freedom of movement and the feeling of connecting to the enviorment. The color is chosen intuitively and corresponds to my personal aesthetics and aura. The fabric is sustainably produced and dyed linen fabric.
The jewelry forms the end of the body sensor. It is made of coated copper, so that the value is measured only from a certain point. The design is very subtle, organic and simple. The total weight must not be too high, because it hangs on the ears.
