Hugdrawing project is a realtime interactive installation work.
I designed the grid sensor with only soft materials and put it on the piece of clothing.
Wearing it, I become a humanoid interpreting ‘touch language’ through hugs and drawing by a human. Through intimate interaction with me, a humanoid body, embodying a vulnerable and sophisticated touch, we together explore how touch experiences can vary between human and machine, and also among humans.
More communication than ever has relied on digital devices;
however, is the way we interact through them enough to show our feeling?
Or to fulfil our desire for intimacy?
what does touch mean for communication?
Through this project, I explore the possibility of emotional interaction experience
by the soft material touch interface which requires more haptic nuance.
