FEEL // Interactive Installation

As human beings we strive for happiness, but it is often most attainable when living in the moment, where it is a natural reaction. happiness is a universal feeling, but sources of happiness depend upon the individual, though studies have shown we tend to find these moments of joy when sharing them with other people. our physical sense of touch, tactility, has the most powerful impact on human emotion. our skin contains thousands of receptors that directly elicit emotional responses such as pain, love, happiness and more.

By bringing together happiness & touch FEEL drives people to connect a physical circuit to make emotional connections with others.

Once the circuit of people is complete, the participants are rewarded with a variety of sound effects that are a response to touching each of the shapes on the table. As a take away there are cards that associate with each shape and a particular source of happiness that we found from our research. With the card users would go on to take a photo with it in their happy place and tag it with #atouchofhappy.
