Touch Me

Touch Me was the first in a series of kinetic interactive installations that took place in empty storefront windows across from the Ritz-Carlton in Boston. It consisted of forty carved wooden motorized fingers that were mounted to the inside of the window with suction cups. A motion sensor was placed outside over the sidewalk, as pedestrians walked by the fingers would tap on the window. The wires were stitched into the walls and architecture of the building. The concept was to connect the building directly to the people on the street.
