DIGITS UNTANGLED

WHAT
‘Digits Untangled’ is a futuristic scenario that explores bodily functions and feelings in an increasingly digital world, treating our skin as a digital interface.

WHY
What will it mean to have a body when everything is dematerialised? And how will sexual intimacy be perceived? Soline Bredin set up a pioneering peep show that completely rethinks sexuality, presenting it as the brain game Untangle.

HOW
Two spectators take their position as voyeurs on opposite sides of the peep box for visual, tactile and auditory interaction. They experience the otherness of their own body as knots are tangled and untangled to trigger their desire. They can feel the vibrations of the movement through their haptic jacket and glove.

QUOTE
Explicit sex is replaced by symbolic interaction.
