Inter_skin (1994) represents a rethinking of today’s communication process. Instead of focusing on the two dimensional monitor and use the monitor as a control and interaction interface, Inter_skin makes the body a living Input and Output. The body becomes an object of communication. The body of the users becomes an inter-skin for communication – rather than an on-screen inter-face.
The communication system is auto-erotic, that is, the sensory suits work and function according to self touch / motion, and not by means of 3D graphical input or actions on the screenIn order to stimulate my partner, I have to touch my own body first. If I, for example, touch my arm, the other person will feel that touch on his arm, or other body part, depending on the configuration of the system.
