inTouch is a set of dresses that consists of a mother’s dress and a child’s dress sharing touch information through garments in an ambient way. They share touch information around the child dress and visualize it on the mother’s dress using thermochromic paint. This was developed to explore how remote touches can convey emotion and help people maintain being connected between remote locations. in inTouch, the artist focuses on creating an affective/shared moment that any parent-child relationships should have via an ambient visual effect on the garment.
