With such capability, TOUCHY encourages offline communication through touch and eye contact; TOUCHY relentlessly spreads this message to the world in different ways.

Visual Art Initiatives in the St. Roch Neighborhood: The SRCC Artist Residency and Staple Goods

BY AARON COLLIER
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2013

Historically, New Orleans has been a city that nourishes and generates creativity amongst artists who stop in, stay for a period, or call it home.  The artist residency at St. Roch Community Church, as well as the collective and gallery space entitled Staple Goods, both aim to further galvanize the St. Roch and St. Claude neighborhoods of New Orleans in keeping such tradition.  Aaron Collier coordinated the inception of both of these enterprises with the sole intention of providing artists with opportunities in a neighborhood that has been, and continues to be, a gift to him and his family.

Make Your Own 3D – 3D einfach selber machen

BY FRANK LORENZ
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 04, 2014

Frank Lorenz, hobby photographer and communications coach, has always been a big fan of anything 3D since 2010.  Once having seen such a photo, he knew he had to buy a 3D camera and take such photos himself.  He is never without his camera and persuades his friends to view his photos whenever possible.  Having this camera has made him see his world in a new light and given those places a different point of reference and angle.

BY REUBEN CHIN
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 01, 2014

By following his camera, award-winning photographer, Reuben Chin, learns more than how to point and shoot. He talks of seeing beauty in the ordinary; becoming engaged enough to seize life's fleeting moments and developing a healthy curiousity of how others see the world.

"Please Touch" Connected Art

BY LE PENHER SOPHIE ET GUILLAUME
@ VOL 10 ON JUL 01, 2015

"To us there seemed to be an obvious link between the transparent surfaces of interactive technology, omnipresent in our lives, and the tactile nature of our glass wood art pieces.

Just as interactive technology requires the human touch to activate, what if our sculpture responded to the human touch?  Could we fuse these two notions--a traditional art form and interactive technology--while maintaining aesthetic integrity and technical functionality? Our idea for a tactile and interactive installation was born." Sophie et Guillaume Le Penher
