We live in a world where technology built with the intent to connect people actually isolates us in practice (e.g. search bubbles, etc.). As if not complex enough, rising inequality across socio economics, education, and many other dimensions further separates our experiences. Our goal is to find a way to connect people with each other through a truly universal and truly human experience. By universal we intend it to be 1) Accessible to all regardless of time, location, ableness, creed, and 2) the same for all who engage with it (regardless of gender, race, socio-economic status etc.)
There are many avenues where we might connect with strangers. Not all connections are equal. Some are more intimate, others are more fleeting and light. In our installation, we hope to create the opportunity for many equally thoughtful connections between strangers, through sharing the warmth of their hands.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
