Haptika: RE-Membering Trauma through Haptic Contradiction

Haptika aims to transform the landscape of therapeutic tools by bringing empowering interventions into the hands of the survivor. Haptika is a set of DIY wearable technology kits aimed at mitigating the effects of abuse. Survivors of abuse can possibly contradict the effects of violence through self employed haptic touch experiences with interactive interfaces resulting in creative expression. Through the access, creation, and remix of these DIY tools, survivors can re-establish a sense of embodiment and empowerment thus contradicting the helplessness and fragmentation of trauma.

EDP Exposition

C3 Studios, Denver, CO; 2015
Mutual Emergence: Biosensing visualized through audio responsive application and particle system. An expression of mutual becoming using biosensing techniques to explore ideas of collaborative emergence. Using an Xth Sense Mechanical Myography (MMG) sensor attached to the forearm of a performer, information is fed into a particle system generated in Max/MSP. The particle system regenerates based on a system of feedback. Additionally, The sensor relays audio signals through muscle vibrations that act as a sort of pre-signal seen in the visualization before the movement is actually enacted. The performer must build a relationship with their own biology through understanding how the sensor reads information from the human musculature. Through adaptive perceptions of our biological workings and systems of feedback mutual emergence forms and reforms.

Site-Specific Installation
C3 Studios, Denver, CO; 2015
Exquisite Crux is an intimate look into the emotional nature of confronting a traumatic experience. The work displays the body, ungrounded and caught in perpetual oscillation, cycling through moments of graceful ecstasy to elegant torment. The cycle represents a struggle with being completely aware and uninhibited with one’s own soul. In this regard, Exquisite Crux represents the splendid, glorious agony of acknowledgment and healing. The cycle of anguish, epiphany and healing are often an amalgam of contradictory feelings that can be likened to experiencing ecstasy in torment. Exquisite can be likened to a divine experience while Crux represents torment, body and base – providing a structure for these fluctuating and fluid emotions.

Site-Specific Installation
Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Denver, CO; 2015
Transphemeral manifests in the use of two poles to personify the flux and flow of transaction between beings. Projection onto semi-transparent fabric enables fluidity and ephemerality in the work. It uses visceral elements and capitalizes on psychosomatic reactions to deeply instinctual aversions to simultaneously create an attraction and repulsion within the viewer. Transphemeral explores themes of exchange while blurring the lines between sexuality and sacrosanct. Elements of the symmetrical transactions are explicitly sexual in nature, appearance and cultural significance. Similarly, the same elements have been used across time and religious practice in ritual, worship and baptismal purifications. By enabling these connections that are inherently conflicting in a visceral amalgam, the piece creates in the viewer a deeply unsettling feeling of attraction and repulsion while attempting to find balance between the transactions of flux and flow.
