Hello, I'm Emily Pan
& today I've got two things on my mind:

design
studio (experimental)

Hold to Hold

A two-screen interactive installation. The game is activated when two players hold down spacebar.
Interrogating the Technoscape (via risd news)

Project Description

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.
