Anti-Slouching Torture Device
2009
Polyurethane Plastic, Thumb Tacks, Sterling Silver, Lanyard, Flourite Crystal
The name of this piece basically tells the viewer what it does. The thumb tacks are situated down the length of the wearer’s spine. There are two clasps on this piece; one around the neck and one that attaches to the wearer’s belt loop. These two clasps create tension. When the wearer is standing straight, the thumb tacks do not press into the skin. If the wearer was to slouch, then the thumb tacks would press into the body. This device teaches the wearer good posture.
