wearable identity

"Man has been for ages carrying different objects with him, holding them, wearing them and taking them to where ever he goes. The advancements in technology has made it possible for him to carry various electronic devices with him. The birth of these portable devices posed a set of new questions on the relationship between an object and the person's body on or around which it is worn. In an era where gadgets are transcending the limits as a device and getting closer to reflect a person himself, the significance of how a device relates to its user is of great importance. Can an object represent an individual's identity and personality? Can it establish itself as a signifier of the person himself through its distinct use and the value associated to it?"
