Each installation explores different elements of virtual touch, presence, and intimate connection between audience-participants, performer-participants, and the physical and virtual space between.

 

The overall installation space was intended to promote a sense of calm, encouraging the audience-participants to explore, play, and discover new ways of connecting through virtual touch.
