Starting with research on how we enjoy and interact with art works based primarily on visual contact, my work questions and explores the plurality of experiencing touch. Tactility extends beyond the material despite the fact that it occurs on our skin. It is a mental happening that can be evoked by a memory, a visual or even a sound. The emphasis of this research is to present the haptic as an inseparable part of sensibility, rather than an isolated stimulation. By playing with materials and processes in objects that attract our touch, I'm exploring beyond the physical contact into this communication between our Haptic sense and the object as an experience.
As humans we interact with and learn about thousands of things on a daily basis, but with very little awareness of the fact that we rely mostly on our dominant sense of sight, while forgetting the information we perceive through touch and neglecting our tactile sense as crucial for human functioning at many different levels.
Rhino Renderings of my final thesis show - The Sensibles
Rhino makes magic happen! I just started using this software and I'm amazed of how useful it can be especially in creating delicate, light pieces of jewelry. In order to use it for my advantage, and use it to visualize my exhibition better - I modeled the gallery space and all 100 works that are going to be suspended on helium balloons. Take a look at what the show is going to look like.
