Multiple personality disorder could be described as many souls existing in the same body. As I understand it, the different personalities are not usually aware of each other, although sometimes they can be.I am interested in investigating what kind of situation makes a person create a new personality. Also, depending on the situation, what kind of personality is someone likely to create? When someone has multiple personalities, do they become confused about which personality is the “real” one?

People create alternative personalities in response to terrible or traumatic events. The new self is a way to escape from a memory that is too painful.

This is an extreme example of how emotional experience can change how someone thinks. In this project, my aim is to create an experimental, wearable piece of jewellery that gives the wearer a suggestion of experiencing a different personality, by creating a new feeling (changing the way they feel). I want people to start thinking “Who am I?”
