    Healing Series



    The Healing series is a set of interactive floor pieces that explore responses to the change caused by interaction.

    Walking through the gallery, visitors come upon a mat covered in glowing, organic patterns. The mat is soft, and appears to be filled with a gel-like polymer. When participants walk across the mat, they see the patterns at first pull away from their feet and shadows, and then regrow to cover the now bare areas. But the participants notice that the pattern has changed. It looks similar to how it looked before they walked across, but it is not exactly the same. They may even notice that the path of their motion has been preserved as a continuous line. Over time, they notice that the line is obliterated, but the pattern has been forever changed.
