Out of Touch

In our world of perpetual connectivity, touching interfaces that keep us out of reach, we form attachments whilst remaining detached, by turns kindling and dampening emotions. A suite of animated and interactive digital poems for the web and/or live performance.

'Out of Touch' was commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the Third Hand Plays series, curated by Brian Kim Stefans, published at SFMOMA's Open Space in Summer 2011. In the original Flash poem, the text was randomly generated so every viewing was a unique experience.

I/O Out of Touch

After making the original 'Out of Touch' piece for SFMOMA, I developed the ideas further, in 'Out of Hand' and 'Out of Sight', to create a collection of playable media for live digital performance.

'Out Of Hand' references the disclosures of Edward Snowden that came to light in 2013.
