Project Description

inTouch is a set of dresses that consists of a mother’s dress and a child dress sharing touch information through garments in an ambient way. This was developed to explore how remote touches can convey emotion and help people maintain being connected between remote locations. It is known that touch is immediate in that it carries emotional meaning in ways that words cannot express. Touch is so critical to human existence that one can conceive of a child growing up. So it is unimaginable for a child’s development devoid of touch experience. This project was created based on the artist’s personal experience with her child. In inTouch, a parent can increase the vividness of her conversation with a child through contextualized touch, and the loved ones may enhance the affective tone of their communication using a remote touch technology. inTouch garments have been created using soft circuit techniques. All the electronic components for sensing human touches and actuating color-changing garment were integrated on the main fabrics.
