The Freqtric Project (2007)

"Without touch, a baby dies, the human heart aches, and the soul withers. Touch is communication on the most basic level. The needs for touch is a necessity throughout our lives, from birth to death, which serves to sustain us emotionally and physically"

from the Power of Touch, Phyllis K. Davis Love is touch, touch is Love, John Lennon

The Freqtric Project is a touch communication interface project. Freqtric system is a skin contact interface that allows body-to-body communication by turning your body and the bodies of others into drum triggers. A performer can play his audience like a drum kit while visitors to the gallery learn to play each other.
