TOUCH AND FEEL
With the increased use of digital devices, people are beginning to lose touch with their surroundings. Literally. Lauren Moullet has studied the human need to interact with our surroundings through touch and movement. Stretching, pressing, pulling and feeling pressures or textures provide the body and mind with much more information than just processing visual information and swiping or tip-touching. This is why she is trying to reintroduce movement, tactility and interaction to our daily activities with her project ‘Touch and Feel’. Dip your light into the sand bag, push the cushion to make coffee, and take the giant plug into your arms to put the kettle on. The exaggerated movements remind our bodies and our brains to stay involved as we navigate our lives.
