Tactile Photography

There’s interactive art, and then there’s art where your touching could eventually become part of the art. Wish someone would venture out and do this around the local area. Truly inspirational when it comes to technology and art working side by side.

The Tactile Photography pieces are produced through a CNC laser etching process that removes the top portion of the wood. The darker the image is a point, the more wood is removed by the laser. The result is a photographic relief that can be touched as well as seen.

As people touch the images, the surface of the wood continues to wear, and people’s experience of the work becomes part of the work itself. No computers nor sophisticated mechanical wizzardy but that doesn´t make these works less “interactive”.
