While nature can benefit people both mentally and physically, contemporary society has become increasingly disconnected from nature. To rebuild a stronger connection with nature in our everyday life, we introduce FloraWear, a do-it-yourself, wearable living interface, that enables people to easily and closely connect with plants. By developing emotional ties to their wearable plants, FloraWear wearers begin to understand that both they and their plants are part of an ecosystem.
