"The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which." ― George Orwell, Animal Farm
In touch with the diminishing relationship between animals and humans while questioning our digital selves. We live in an era where our main interaction with the very beasts that form the basis of much of our nutrition and clothing is limited to Youtube. To create a reconnect from this disconnect, our Man and Communication students have designed a seriously playful interaction. But who’s playing who? Who’s acting more natural, and who gets to make the rules? This project investigates the boundary-shifts between (human) nature and technology resulting in an interactive experiment. It involves the effects of touch on people and animals, and the creation of awareness through touch with a special guest appearance by a pony, some chickens, a rooster, a few sheep, some goats, and a couple of bunnies.
