Jiyeon Kang's MFA thesis project titled Wearable Self is a data-driven design project to create customizable fashion items generated by self-data, which is an attempt to make quantified self data more meaningful for individuals who use wearable devices. The final design outcome is a data-driven jewelry collection that results in beautiful, translucent, acrylic necklaces and earrings using quantified self data gathered by health applications and wearable trackers. Through personalization and customization, Wearable Self creates new opportunities for users to interact with their own data, resulting in meaningful, tangible objects that they can hold and wear.
