Making touch visible

thesis
posted on 20.07.2021, 03:19 by NAOMI MARGALIT ELLER
This thesis considers this strong psychological sensation – when sight becomes tactile – as ‘haptic’, defining hapticity as a kind of enveloping in which an artwork creates a circuit of dialogue between the object, viewer and maker: a circuit in which sight and touch unite. As an artist, this union of sight and touch lies for me at the heart of the experience of making an artwork: the haptic experience of the artwork – the experience of its tactile exteriority, of the skin of the work – enables the viewer to experience the artwork in an embodied way.
