Development of idea
We felt our idea needed to be scaled up, so we looked at how we could change the hands into something that was for the whole body. This could then be linked to different sensitive parts of the body and make people more aware of what they are feeling. We wanted to change the interaction between people, and what it is to feel someone else.
We came up with the idea of the touch suit. Building on the idea of meditation we wanted to draw attention to the body and its feeling with the distractions of everyday life. This meant making the sensations more impactful.
We experimented with lots of different materials and asked questions through speed dating on how they made us feel.
