Inspiration On Your Wrist – Design Concept

Wearable tech could improve positivity – make a huge difference to a person’s mindset, rippling throughout their life and relationships for fulfilling outcomes.

I developed a smart watch concept that will monitor pulse, body temperature and motion in order to prompt timely delivery of motivating images and inspiring messages.

For example; elevated heart rate, without physical movement, could be an indicator of anxiety – in this instance the device would alert the wearer, through tone, music track, vibration and/or screen lighting up, to inspiring content, tailored for them through preferences selected in an app.

The smart watch design prototype
The watch console would slip into a stretchy elastic strap that can be changed and easily replaced. Comfort, own choice of design, washable, changeable and inexpensive.

The strap idea came from my custom designed and printed hair and wrist bands.

There could be the option for the wearer to print their own strap design at home – making their product unique.

 

The idea is developing and I wonder whether this could be an app in itself. Will explore that idea.

The Dog That Wanted To Fly – Illustrated Children’s Book

First Birthday and Art Exhibition Evening

Inspire by Kim is ย now one year old. it has been a heck of a first year and culminated in my exhibition launch evening last Thursday. Friends, family and art buddies came together to see my artworks including oil paintings, Collograph, Lino prints, digital and paper cut pictures.

My exhibition lasts for the month of April at the Airy Fairy Cafe and Gift Shop. I feel blessed to be holding this exhibition and accomplishing this big step with my art.โ€ช

For me it’s about reaching out to inspire people, to add a splash colour and energy to counter some of the darkness of the news media and world events, to brighten and hopefully uplift someone’s day. To raise a smile, to evoke a positive feeling. To spark a memory, spread a little nostalgia which could become seeds of hope. To reach hearts and minds with possibility of a better world, one artwork, one day at a time.

Not everyone will like what I do, but if it makes someone feel a little brighter then who knows where a small ripple could lead. This is why I create and share.

Here are some images from the Exhibition launch evening.

Prior to the exhibition the highlights of the past 12 months were:

Art Challenge 33 โ€“ My First Art Commission!

Art Challenge 34 โ€“ Football Fan Artwork

Self Portrait โ€“ Number 52 โ€“ the FINAL art challenge

The Hardest Year, 2015, Ends โ€“ Art Reflectionย 

I wonder what the next 12 months will bring, exciting times.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to see more you can see my creations during my 52 art challenges, watch art movies or find some inspiration for a creative project.

Enjoy. Kim ๐Ÿ˜Š
