Humans haptic interaction relates to all aspects of touch and body movement but also to the application of human senses to the digital interactive language. This involves not only sensation and perception, but also emotional response. Interpersonal touch is an undervalued aspect of human nature; the proposed installation aims to create an environment where the most profound communication channel for humans takes a renewed meaningful role. “It is touch that give our sense of “reality”…. Not only our geometry and physics but our whole conception of what exists outside us, is based on the sense of touch.” (Russel 1969). The virtual environment was created through sounds generated by the electroencephalography data gathered during the users interaction. The original software is programmed used Max/MSP over OSC-router and the sound will be spatialized through a quadraphonic sound diffusion system.
