Chris Salter: Haptic Field

Finished Ended on Sun Sep 4, 2016
Chronus Art Center
Bldg 18, 50 Moganshan Lu, near Aomen Lu


American artist Chris Salter brings Haptic Field to Chronus Art Center this summer. That sees him work with Italian artist and musician TeZ on a multi-sensory installation that uses wearable technology to create physical experience. Garments were designed by Chinese fashion brand JNBY. This one's pretty special: produced especially for CAC, it covers four boundary-busting areas: art involving the senses, wearable tech, sensory anthropology, and the science of haptics. Visitors to the exhibition will be instructed to don one those specially designed garments, each comprising a one-piece unit with attached hood and visor. Wireless devices developed Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory at McGill University in Montreal then trigger vibrations, sensations and what sounds to be a pretty unique experience. Tickets cost 30rmb (weekdays) or 40rmb (weekends) online; or 35rmb/45rmb on the door.
