A set of 14 prototypes and a compact disk containing images for the Three Dimensional Design concept for the PresenSe Wallet.

Artist's statement:
The PresenSe wallet was designed to help reassure people about the whereabouts of their wallet. The idea came about when I studied several people tapping their pockts to reassure themselves that their wallet was still present. I used texture so that when taken unlawfully the removal of the wallet would be felt by the owner. Full process available at
