Touch is an installation that facilitates merging of people into one massive being. Using a motion sensing device (Kinect) to detect when people are touching, Touch renders images of them resembling irregularly shaped amebas. Similarly to other emergent phenomena, this piece invites people to stand together to find out what kind of being they will become together. Exhibited at the 2013 Boston FIGMENT Art Festival.
