8-27-13 Boston, Massachusetts. Touch is an installation that facilitates the merging of multiple people into one being. Using a motion sensing device (Kinect) to detect when people are touching, Touch renders images of them resembling irregularly shaped amebas. This piece causes strangers to stand together to find out what kind of being they will become. Exhibited at the 2013 Boston FIGMENT Art Festival.
