Skin Hunger

Hamon Arts Library Lobby

Skin Hunger is a telematic installation that plays on the zoom-style video-chat that has recently become ubiquitous. Participants can reach across their screens to virtually "touch" one another. By touching or moving together, participants create visuals and sounds that emerge and evolve from participant relation and interaction making the intangible connection tangible and also giving it life. Open to the public October 26 through 31.
