Telematic installation. Moving boards, sensors, pneumatically operated pistons and internet.
This installation is composed of two interactive sidewalks that are set up in a public place in two different cities. With every step on the planks, an impulse is triggered and digitally transferred to the other city. The respective boards in that city then rise a few centimetres and vice versa.
“Bump – a tactile interface versus the disembodiedness of network worlds: two wooden catwalks in public space, ready for the masses to stage. Every pressure exerted causes resistance that comes through on the other side. There is a knock from underneath, the slats rise, power transmission via network – sensations on the move.” Christian Kühn
