Wearable Forest is a clothing design that bio-acoustically interacts with distant wildlife in a remote forest through a remotecontrolled speaker and microphone using a network. It expresses the bioacoustical beauty of nature in its unique aesthetic appeal for users and allows the users interact with a forest in real time through a network to acoustically experience a distant forest soundscape, thus merging man and nature without environmental destruction. This novel interactive sound system can create a sense of unity between users and a remote soundscape, enabling users to feel a sense of belonging to nature even in the midst of a city.
