Touch Liminal, 2019
Web based Augmented Reality weblink, dimensions variable, location variable
free to anyone with IOS or Android enabled device.
Touch Liminal is there but not there, and only accessible where technology imposes its visual payload upon those willing. If touch is that most intimate of senses, this remains a somewhat unsatisfying experience, to touch, but never quite touch.
Two hands forever slowly circle each other, never meeting, one ( annoying ) hand just bounces around pointing, and two hands when attempting to touch go through each other.
The "pencil of nature” continues to be refined into convincing audio visual apparitions and AR is a stop gap solution before more fully immersive experiences. For now it's shiny playfulness masks an absence and the sense of being stuck at the threshold of the visual.
