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.

How about smell and sound? I'm adding those elements to my new haptic stuff, trying to reach out to more senses.

So I've been tweaking my embroidered postcards for a while and along came this group which flowed well with my evolution. I wanted to make the ladies more autonomous- I began sending them folded up within an envelope but wanted to make them more synchronous with mail art. The sculptural quality of haptics caught my imagination and BLAM, fourteen postcards later, I'm on a roll! You'll see the results soon, thanks for fostering my epiphany!

I just saw a band in concert a week or two ago called Tesseract, and had to look up the term. Now I see it here. That's what they call a coyote for sure.
