Nowadays our daily rituals are constantly interrupted by external influences, specifically by our electronic devices. We are almost always ‘connected’ with the outside world and the only way to disconnect is by turning off our devices. By making the body part of an electric circuit, you become the switch. The patterns on your arms function as sliders, which make sound by using a piezo speaker. Accessories hold the cables, piezo and arduino in place. After undergoing the ritual your body can function as an instrument.
