Between Code & Touch

Interactive Experience

Much of our everyday access to the digital world is mediated through the touchscreens on the mobile devices we use, through which our gaze can pass but not our touch. We simply trace patterns on their smooth surfaces. The gestures that we habitually re-enact everyday form part of a commodifed language that is ingrained into contemporary human-machine interaction, and which is designed to melt away into the background of our experience. Between Touch & Code imagines what happens beyond our interactions with touchscreens, between the movement of our fingers and its codification into proprietary gestural navigation systems, through exploratory game environments.
