Disclaimer: This event will contain a lot of feeling (emotional) and touching (physical), and a lot about what it’s like to be human; in case you’ve turned into a robot.
In this exclusive event multimedia artist, experience designer, audience researcher, and academic Dr. Yiota Demetriou will introduce, perform, and show her new interactive artist’s book that feels, and will talk about her broader work on multisensory interactive storytelling.
To You is an intimate reading experience hidden in the pages of an apparently unreadable book, that reveals itself only in response to the reader’s warmth. The book seeks the affectionate touch of a reader to unravel the scars and tears of its soul. When the palm of a hand embraces its dark pages, a white shadow appears that gradually colours the book’s pages; having it overflow with heartfelt love letters, or poetry in prose, that nobody ever received. To You reflects the compassion and relief that can only come from the warmth of a human hand.
There will be an opportunity to interact with the book, meet the artist and author, and preorder after the talk. This is a rare, and unique book launched as a special edition with a very limited number of handcrafted copies that will be soon available to order worldwide.
Bluchip gallery will be the first to host preorders of this genuine piece globally and will be the only place it can be bought from across Cyprus.
