Born in New York and raised in 7 different countries, I am keen on studying human interactions, cultures and languages. Now I am back in New York as a designer, exploring the intersection between the digital and physical worlds. Side note: I make good sloth illustrations.
HandsON is an interactive installation that explores interpersonal relationship and connection. In today’s highly networked and tethered society, I feel that we are allowing less and less time to share a moment of direct contact with one another. My project is a reaction to such phenomenon, and it works with three main elements--mirrors, lighting and people--to create a sense of connection between two participants. I hope to inspire the participants to think about what contact and connection mean in today’s society.
