This project presents an inquiry and exploration of the tactile sense that has been gradually losing significance in our everyday life. It investigates three aspects of touch; 1. Fading Touch / the deterioration of the senses, 2. Physical Touch / how touch is perceived, and 3. Accepted Touch / the limitations of touch in social and cultural norms. In recognition that: Tactility is not blind immediacy – not merely sensorial but cognitive, too. The intention is for users to rediscover and re-encounter their sense of touch and ultimately, be able to take away a deeper understanding of the role of touch in the world we live in today.
