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.

Terreract is a term that describes the "wrinkling" of time and space, allowing two points to be connected through this fifth dimension rather than forcing you to travel on a straight line. For example, if you take points A and B and connect them with a piece of string, the shortest route would be to walk along the straight piece of string. But in tessering, you could wrinkle the string, or fold it upon itself, so that points A and B would be right next to each other, allowing you to just walk across. It is how the people travel to distant planets in A Wrinkle in Time. I read that book in grade school and it's still one of my favorites.
