Handshack - VISUAL ART

Free admission

The public is invited to attend or participate in the performance.

To celebrate their 20 years of collaboration, Festival Accès Asie and OBORO are proud to present Handshack an interactive installation by the multidisciplinary artist Marites Carino.

Completed as part of the short-term residency Interval at OBORO’s New Media Lab, Handshack questions how our overuse of electronics reduces daily opportunity for human contact and diminishes our ability to be present when face-to-face.

In this world of instant communication, our first contact with people is often virtual, either through the Internet, telephone, texts or e-mail. All day we swipe screens, type on keyboards and punch buttons.

Handshack is an interactive installation that invites human connection. This intimate piece captures candid, real-time encounters between two strangers who get to know each other solely through touch. Using the handshake as a starting point, blind tactile conversations are twisted into unexpected choreographies.
