An installation, activated when two
people come together to interact
with the piece. The only instruction
given is “hold to hold”—when doing
so, a poem is generated and projected
for the audience. The “activators” of
the piece are shown an intimate
animation of hands holding each
other, while a constantly changing
public-facing poem sits between them.
This piece is an exploration of the imperfections
of human-to-human connection, a
pursual of mechanism as meaning, and a
practice of using technology as a
means of mediating our experiences.
