Touching my breath, 2018

In the light of the current digital media context, in which data and privacy are major topics of discussion, Patrícia J. Reis artwork examines potential processes of semantic translation between humans and machines. Touching my breath (2018) focuses on one's own intimate haptic system, taking into consideration their sensorial mechanism as an apparatus for the construction of individual sensations. The interactive installation invites participants to engage physically and bodily, experiencing haptic sensations resultant from the data collected from their own breath.
