The Touching Booth

The Flirt, a photo by geekphysical on Flickr.

As part of LABtoLAB in Nantes, France, we created the Touch Chair installation, part photo booth, part kissing booth, where two people sit across from each other and touch to take a photo.

Each time the photo is taken, half the screen changes so as to allow strange combinations of strangers or friends - or even two instances of the same person occur.

When one person touches the other, the camera takes a photo of one side of the scene - when another touch is 'felt' the other side of the photo is taken.

In this way, two photos make up the scene and people had fun playing with the possibilities, creating some amusing photos and finding some interesting ways to 'connect'.
