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.
