TACTO strives to explore the senses’ response to crossfires of artistic messages. The poem, the sound and the images invite the viewer to watch and hear elements with a sensory magnifying glass. The textural, the cellular, the atomic layers lead to a creative deconstruction, or reconstruction, of reality. The simplicity of the materials is deteriorated almost to a pre-technological degree. It is a celebration of life’s senseless flaws: the chaotic patterns of our skin surface, the duality of youth and maturity, light and darkness, the breaking down of speech into disorderly whispers, the elusive meaning of the words we speak.
