A wearable audio sculpture by Emily Biondo made of knit speaker wire. The sound is cast at a whispered level through small speakers in the collar of the work. The piece is knit in the traditional semblance of a Christian prayer shawl, and emits audio of collected prayers of care and concern from a number of world religions.
