This project is a reflection of the gestures we perform on a routine basis in order to interact (as the trigger and the data input) with networked devices such as smartphones and laptops. These gestures are abstracted/flattened in the design process and transformed into online behaviors. This habit-formation process only takes us a few attempts to get into new games of communications and interactions. How and by whom is this gestural language designed? Where is it taking our bodily actions to? As gestural controls are being further developed to blending the online/virtual world and the “real world”, this project reveals something intimate and problematic, wandering around the missing context left behind through our online interactions.
