Haptic Poetry

Haptic poetry combines characteristics of typography and sculpture to create work not only to be seen but to be touched. This group is for anyone who values sense of touch as much as sense of sight.

Pedro's cards are always fascinating, as we try to decipher what is really between the plastic layers? He sent this to Afroditi for the EGG exhibit:

and I do think that there maybe egg yoke inside?

As we can't "feel-the-art", or smell it...perhaps it is not "haptic" in that sense, or senses, but because we "see" it...and can imagine what it must smell like, etc...well, it could be haptic poetry!

What's that orange thing on the bottom left, Erni? a holy haptic cookie?

Great posting, MomKat. I really like the pics!

Nice  "angels" here!, in Hamburg :-)

This was in today's mail:

always strange, and "haptic" from "Mute sound".

It makes me wonder what is inside the plastic lamination???

Though there isn't anything "gooey" or mold-growing this time!

There are a few choco coin wrappings and a tag from tea!

Received a very nice HAPTIC card from Marcela in Argentina.

Very, very thick paint and wonderful paint aroma! Thank you Marcela! xxx

That video is wonderful! A new kind of visual hapticness, perhaps.
