Conducting energy through people to stimulate tangible public interactions
(this is an updated & revised version of this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/I-just-wanna-hold-your-hand/)
By interacting, not just with an installation, but with also with each other, people are able to transform their environment through connection. Undertaken as an entry in the 2012 Urban Prototyping Festival organized by GAFFTA.
Two metal hands are mounted to the wall. When two or more individuals complete the circuit they provoke audiovisual responses. The level of interactivity is determined by the flow of current through the individuals.
