The project explores the nature of physical/bodily experience through a series of interactive soft sculptures and sound. The sculptural elements function like objects and spaces of bodily comfort and are equipped with sensors in order to respond to touch. The audio tracks triggered by physically interacting with the object are compiled from interview segments on the subject of bodily experiences of health and illness. The project is in collaboration with Harborview Medical Center and supported in part by CityArtist (office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, Seattle)and 4Culture Special Projects grants.
