The Boundary of Things

Silicone, plaster, sound, light, light sensors

The Boundary of Things contains a haptic interface that mediates light and sound. By interconnecting vision, hearing, and touch, our visual world in which touch plays an inferior role is temporarily moved aside. It’s an interplay among the senses in which the inanimate and animate, the static and the everlasting changing world, and the organic and inorganic are sensed and questioned. The artwork therefore becomes an instrument with which to playfully search for boundaries and balance. The visitor is invited to touch with hesitation and to hesitate through touch.
