A Summary of Your Project (1-2 sentences)

Ideal Installation Venue

The ideal venue will be in a white medium room. Preferably inside of a gallery.

Background and Concept This year because of Covid, we needed to think before we hugged or even shook hands. It made me think about sexual harassment: about new rules and new boundaries. But it also made me think about touching boundaries in art. All those thoughts made me think about the interaction and that I want to create a few models that will each have different touch boundaries and the viewer will need to explore them.

Project Description My project will be between 30-40 pillow-like looking objects in different skin colors. Every pillow corner will be like an “arms”. All those “pillows” will be on the floor or on a table, when the viewer will pass them in the gallery space the "arms" will respond to the viewer, either stretch or will be deterred .

Audience Interaction The people in the gallery will act neutrally (as natural as they can be in a gallery space) once they will get close to one of object the interaction will happen.

Social Impact The project tries to explore the boundaries of touching and raising the question "can people know what are other people's boundaries".
