Prosthetic haptic memories

We often refer to our society as a 'visual society', this is how we decided to experience the world. But if we describe our world and our memories in haptic terms, how they 'look like'?

 

This project aims to reconsider the developing of our society, by highlighting things that are part of our experiences but are impossible to understand only through sight.

 

I've created an ensemble of objects/machines, all reproducing haptic sensations (touch, humidity perception, weight perception, proprioception, kinesthetic sensastions)  connected to my grandfather. I picked very specific ones yet ones that are easy to relate with.
