Final wallet prototype. A black leather wallet featuring a tactile silicone bump surface.
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
