Imagined Touch is a sensorium created in collaboration with Deafblind artists Heather Lawson and Michelle Stevens. Exploring their profound experience of living in a world without sight or sound, this is an immersive installation where you will experience tactile communication.
Greeted by tactile sign guides, you will watch Deafblind performers introduce their world through a film. The tactile sign guides will give you headphones and goggles, guiding you into a large unseen space. With 360-degree projection, expect to lose your depth of field, seeing only a blur of white and black. Through feeling textures underfoot, running hands upon faceless silhouettes, hearing a distortion of sounds, you will experience the visceral; receiving tactile sign, social haptic communication and touch choreography.
