Naomi Kizhner has a new line of jewelery called “Energy addicts” that is meant to capitalize on the trend in renewable energy devices. The jewelery turns your body into a kind of living battery. The jewellery is inserted into the wearer’s veins. Then their movements and continuous flow of blood turn a wheel inside the design, creating enough kinetic energy to produce electricity. The electricity is supposed to be enough to recharge a mobile device like a cell phone.
Naomi says: ‘There are lots of developments of renewable energy resources, but the human body is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive.
‘I wanted to explore the post-humanistic approach that sees the human body as a resource… Will we be willing to sacrifice our bodies in order to produce more energy? My intention is to provoke a discussion.’
