Senescentis Felix explores the stigma around aging and ways to create a positive discussion around it. It was developed through research of people’s perception and the different kinds of aging. This wearable is a step towards the embracement of wrinkles. It encourages its wearer to play with its pulley devices to create deep, dense wrinkles along their own neck. The more intense the wrinkles, the more interesting the piece becomes. This wearable acts as a platform for discussions between the wearer and the people that interact with them.
