Tactile Choreographies Research
As part of her engagement with TOPAZ/IN-FINITY Vera Tussing gathered several of her collaborators to work on a series to short research interventions with the Guests of TOPAZ. One of her final projects resulted in: Tactile Choreographies. This research installation is build around the idea of embroidery as a mode of generating both spatial, tactile and choreographic trajectories. To support the embroidered path, an interlaced wooden ‘choreographic sculpture’ is placed as support.* Touch situates us in space. It builds a sense of embodied connectivity within one’s kinesphere. One can experience touch directly, or one can achieve an empathetic relationally through observing touch occur at a distance. Both Tactile Scores and Tactile Choreographies are an attempt to bridge both of these forms of the tactile encounter.
