TRANSNATIONAL ACTIVATION OF SIMULTANEOUS TOUCH (2022)

The communication of touch over networks has long been subject to exploration and reflection by media artists. The global pandemic has brought to light a surprising lack of attention paid to the sense of touch in technical and conceptual advances in online communication. In this project, artist Marnix de Nijs researches the the history of the artistic exploration of networked touch and developed several prototypes that reflect on our contemporary desire for transnational simultaneous touch.
