Life Supporting: touch project
Interactive piece that invites the viewer to participate. The participant's touch on the (simulated skin rubber) torso causes the cool light of the heart to begin to pulse with red light and the two pigs on the lower shelf to pulse. A video of two pigs in a large outdoor pen begins to play. When the participant's touch is removed the pulsing heart returns to a constant cool light, the two pigs cease to pulse and the video stops playing.
