Artist Kate Hartman creates wearable electronics to explore how we communicate, both with ourselves and with the world around us. In this quirky and thought-provoking TEDTtalk, Hartman demonstrates the "Talk to Yourself Hat," the "Ear Bender," the "Gut Listener," and other devices that increase self-awareness and mediate social exchange. Hartman also makes devices that allow for interface between humans and houseplants and humans and glaciers, playfully encouraging users to think about how they relate to their surroundings.
